With a new format for the league and new faces to the team, Tshwane Suns would face the Limpopo Pride in a five-game series.
In an epic matchup, Tshwane Suns and Limpopo Pride would meet for the first of five games. The Pride would come out prepared to test the Sun’s defensive abilities, something the team has created a reputation for.
Pride would set the tone of the game forcing the Suns to struggle defensively throughout the first half. The second half was a series of runs for both teams but new signings Kagiso aka “Chiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeef” (2nd Captain) and Tshidi aka “The Show-Stopper” would step up to plate to rally the team offensively.
The team showed some resilience to control the second half of the game, open a slight lead and win the game. Game 1 would be a learning curve for the team on how to handle the rest of the series.
Game MVP: Tshidiso Matebesi
