Match Report

After our great opening victory against Ajax, The Magic were looking to keep the momentum going when we hosted newcomers Mbekweni Cosmos to our home ground on Friday 17th August.  We started off well and missed a few early chances, and then Cosmos scored a stunning a long range goal that had everyone asking how that went in.   We then mounted attack after attack in search of the equaliser but a combination of poor finishing and desperate defending managed to keep us out, but Danian Warley was brought down in the box just before half time after some great interchange passing and Therlo Moosa calmly slotted the penalty home, sending the keeper the wrong way.
The Magic came out firing in the 2nd half and the game was played mostly in the opposition half but still chance after chance went begging.  But with 10 minutes left Moosa got his 2nd when he nodded home a Wood freekick and a few minutes later the same player completed his hattrick when he ran on to a beautiful through ball from defender Kyle Adriaanse to slot home our 3rd of the match to secure the 3 points.
