Eva Nga’s hat-trick plummets Team of Choice

Chippa United crushed a ten-men Maritzburg United 3-1 during their DStv Premiership match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Cameronian International Eva Nga’s hat trick, awarded the Chillie Boys a much-needed win after they lost their match against Kaizer Chiefs.

The win has moved Chippa from the bottom half of the table to fourth spot while Maritzburg have early season blues as they remain second from the bottom with three losses from as many matches.

Eva Nga’s first two goals were conversions from the penalty spot where he sent Maritzburg goalkeeper Jethren Barr the wrong way and he went for the far post for his third of the night.

During the closing stages of the first half, Mothwa was forced to produce decent save to deny Maritzburg attacker Thabiso Kutumela from the edge of the box after the Bafana Bafana striker received the ball from Tebogo Tlolane.

Mothwa was well-positioned to be able to adequately deal with a mistimed close range shot from former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Ali Meza after 51 minutes as Maritzburg went in search of another goal.

Chippa retook the lead just before the hour mark and once again from the spot by Eva Nga for his second goal after he was brought down in the box by Barr who moved out of his line.
