Friday Night Lights
This past Friday, I once again had the amazing opportunity to grab my camera and head down to Harry Gwala Stadium in Pietermaritzburg, for a massive encounter between Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic.
The Team of Choice(Maritzburg United), have managed field an unbeatable team when it comes to playing on a Friday, whether it be home or away. The team have created a name for themselves, always finding away to either come out on top, or sharing the spoils with their opposition.
On last Friday's version of Friday Night Lights, it was no different! After a very intense first half; that ended goalless, it was all to play for in the second half. The visitors opened the goal count in the second half, and then shortly after doubling their lead to have a 2 0 advantage over the Team of Choice. However, the boys in blue had a never say die attitude. After converting a penalty from the spot, Maritzburg eventually found their equaliser in referees added time after the 90 minutes. The game ended 2 2 with both teams sharing the spoils.
It is always such an unbelievable atmosphere at Harry Gwala Stadium, and its always such an honour to be there to capture the action. Next home game for the team will be on the 27th(My Birthday ;) )
Good luck to the team who will be playing away in the TKO Semi Finals.
