A lone Zaakier Williams goal was enough to secure Ajax Cape Towns first win in their opening game of the 2012 Metropolitan Premier Cup at Erica Park on Thursday evening.
The Urban Warriors played Milano United and the game was played at a high tempo from the start.
Both teams used their midfielders to launch their attacks but it was Williams who fired the first shot at goal. Zaakier cut inside from the right flank and fired his long range shot goal-wards, the shot hit the cross bar to the relief of the Milano bench.
Williams hit the back of the net minutes later with a well-placed shot at the near post to give Ajax the lead.
In the second half, Milano fought back forcing a number of corners but the Ajax defence was not tested.
Michael Kwong had possibly the best chance to score in the second half when he stole in at the far post, but his shot flew over the bar.
Ajax Cape Towns remaining fixtures are;
1. vs Aces Academy, Fri 06 Apr k/o@ 16h45
2. vs Ariel Spurs, Sat 07 Apr, k/o@ 12h45
