Challengers Battle: Shepherds United ends first leg with a win

The Challengers Battle (CB) first leg ended with Shepherds United triumph over Seveners in an interesting match last thursday 13th May, at the PVM Stadium.

The afternoon saw a shepherds backed fans back in the PVM Stadium again after missing in the premiere for some time, with beautiful costumes and black and white flag waving around the stadium.

It was an interesting game played between the Seveners who have trained hard and camped out for the challenge against the mighty tall shefarian's.

The Shepherds team might have capitalized on their heights and the fact that they are the only club in the PVFA with very tall players plus their football skills placed them unique and are favorites too.

The match was predicted by fans to be an easy win for the United but after a 1-1 first half, coach Albert Manaroto, Wilson August and Wilkins Lauru quickly identified their weaknesses and sent them back in with  new strategies and wining faith and the boys did it.

Willie August scored twice to create victory for Shepherds United F.C. over Seveners F.C. with 2 goals to 1. However, the two teams will meet again tomorrow to complete their opening CB match posponed due a cyclone earlier this year.
