Pretoria – Goals in either half from AmaTuks' new signings Geofrey Massa and Atusaye Nyondo wrapped-up a 2-0 victory over Golden Arrows in a Premiership clash in Pretoria on Sunday.
Having joined shortly before the start of the new campaign, Massa scored his third league goal of the season early in the first half.
Nyondo added the finishing touches to a comfortable victory for the University side to secure their second consecutive home win.
Massa provided the hosts with their first real opportunity in the 14th minute, but failed to convert from a promising breakaway, which was thwarted by former Tuks goalkeeper Siya Mngoma.
The Ugandan international made amends a minute later when he glanced home a fine header from a Tuks free-kick just outside the area.
Massa rose above his markers and tucked away the opener past Mngoma, who could do nothing but look on as the ball sailed into the top right of goal.
He again came close to doubling his tally 10 minutes after his goal, but grazed the upright after a defensive error from the Arrows back four which allowed Tuks to set-up Massa.
Massa was proving to be a handful upfront and went narrowly wide two minutes after the interval.
Arrows were desperate for an opportunity and had their best opportunity in the 56th minute when Philane Shange's headed effort forced a save from Tuks shot-stopper Washington Arubi, who parried away over his crossbar.
AmaTuks' Buhle Mkhwanazi showed why Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund included him in recent outings with a superb display at the back.
While the visitors found it tough in font of goal, Tuks were looking comfortable and were rewarded for their dominance in possession in the 81st minute.
Atusaye Nyondo rounded-off a well-worked build-up, with the last touch coming from second half replacement Mpho Maruping, before Nyondo netted the second for the Pretoria side. – Sapa
