CAPE TOWN – Beaten but not defeated.
Promoted Stellenbosch FC will see it that way after going down 1-0 to Cape Town City in a first Cape derby Premier League meeting at the Athlone Stadium on Saturday night.
City had frontline player Chris David to thank for their win and first victory of the new season.
The ex-Fulham player, who joined the club in February, rounded off a move featuring four players with a well-placed, well-struck shot from his favoured left boot from inside the box that ended up in the bottom left-hand corner of goalkeeper Boy de Jong’s net.
Stellies weren’t much of a threat during the first half but it was a different story in the second period as they found their mojo and began to threaten City’s defence.
