Angels sitting just off the pace 19/02/04
Cape Town Angels are a young women's team (average age 14.3 years) who are campaigning in the top flight of women's football, the Sanlam Halala League, for the first time after gaining promotion last season.

The young women have been giving an excellent account of themselves so far and are currently sitting in fourth position behind CT Roses, Santos and Jamestown Athletic.

SASoccer365.com was following their progress earlier in the season and we will continue to do so as the race for league honours hots up.

Here are the match reports from the latest two Angel's games which their coach,  Lee Du Plessis, sent to SASoccer365.

Would you like to tell us more about the club you are involved with?


Angels give African Tribe Valentine Roses

Angels 6 African Tribe 0

This Valentines Day Weekend was a tough one for the Angels.  Friday 13th Feb 2004 the Angels hosted African Tribe.  At kick-off the match shaped up as a real titan clash with the Angels, 4th, being challenged by African Tribe, 5th.

The game started with African Tribe taking the offensive but the Angels kept their shape well and were very well organized in defence. 

Janine Jacobs in midfield had a particularly good showing with a great level of work and controlled aggression on display.  This aided the forward onslaught of the Angels with Kayleen Jacobss smooth movement, touch and channel running.

The Angels rattled the wood work early and had some chances. One that stands out particularly was a cross being served by Megan Jacobs from the right of the field which was met by Lindsey Dolman executing a great volley, only to find the keeper in the way. 

The continued pressure paid off as the Angels scored twice in close succession just before half time.  This was a good way to go into the break and it had the crowd on its feet.

The team then consolidated their win with a further four goals in the second stanza, with the only worry being the injury of Lynne "Bam-Bam" Dirks.


Angels get pricked by thorny Santos

Angels 0 Santos 2

Coming into Sundays game, the Angels hosted the thorny Santos Ladies FC. 

Santos, who currently lie 2nd on the log, were going to be a tougher nut to crack than that of the Tribe of Friday night. 

The Angels were nursing some wounds and Lynne Dirks would not play after coming off with an injury. This would be a tough match up but the girls were in good spirit.

The game started out at a quick pace with the Angels working hard for one another - covering, shifting and pressuring.  the Santos Ladies were much quicker to the ball and this posed problems for the Angels from the outset. 

The girls did not shy away from the challenge and danced toe-to-toe with the thorny Santos giants. 

The Angels game plan was simple and one they stuck to - they outplayed Santos through the middle of the park, giving a good account of themselves. 

Predictably Santos stuck to the route one game plan hoofing the ball over the top for their strikers to run onto.  

The Angels went closest first and got a shot on target. 

Santos then took the ball down the field with another hoof.  All day the Angels defence handled the air balls but unfortunately could not clear quickly enough and Santos had one in the net. 

Coach Lee Du Plessis seemed to have had some words with the Angels players as they came out and played with a lot more purpose in the second stanza.

Substitute Janice Alexander made an immediate impression and came close, only to be denied by the far post. 

Against the run of play Santos then scrambled in another goal which killed the game off.

The Angels team has come on in leaps and bounds and because of the excitement and high level of skill from players so young, they will surely attract more fans.  The Cape Town Angels Football Club is the fastest growing womens football club in Cape Town and soon South Africa, and this weekend gave great testament to that.
