Shepherds upset Amicale

But on a difficult hot day they had to wait until the 75th minute to break the deadlock as the United proved more than capable opponents.
Danny Michel produced a moment of pure Shepherds magic to set the United on their way to victory against the champions.
It fell to right-back young Danny Michel to settle United’s nerves with a goal of typical beauty.
Latching on to a pass down the right from Michel but at a seemingly impossible angle trapped against the byeline, he produced a swerving screamer that bent in with goalkeeper Ernest Bong standing a fraction too far off his post.
He wheeled away in celebration, raising hopes of his team to be in the top 5 a head of Academy.
Amicale Midfilder Saimata Chilia failed to convert a penalty shot in the first half and things go worst when midfilder Stanley Waita was red carded after receiving his second caution and left the champion with only 10 players playing against 11 United players until the final whistle.
Amicale are without trios Jack Whitney, Alick Maemae and defender Nelson Sale today.
United deserved the victory for their dominance in possession, especially in the second half, but Amicale’s reserve players can hold their heads high after a display full of passion and no little skill either.
Amicale must always put their heads up and now go back to drawing board and get back to real football training before they play Koloale next Saturday at Lawson Tama Stadium.
