EXCEPT for two matches, goals were hard to come by in the Safa-NMB SAB league, which started this weekend.
Eight matches produced just 11 goals with four scored in one match. Five of the matches ended in draws.
On Friday evening Callies and Motherwell Academy kicked off the season with a goalless draw at Londt Park.
With Callies enjoying territorial advantage, Motherwell have their goalkeeper Avelo Mahambelhlala to thank for picking up their first point in their debut match.
On Saturday Subs shocked pre- season favourites Lion City, their Motherwell neighbours, by thrashing them 4-0.
Both teams ended the match with 10 players following a red card for either side.
In another surprise, Highland Spurs from Uitenhage beat Tomorrow Stars from Motherwell 2-0. Mthetheleli Gaveni scored both goals for Spurs.
At the Gelvan Track debutants Fairview Rovers (Nafa) and Peace United (Pefa) drew 1-1. United got off to a scintillating start when Alani Kalmai scored within seconds of the kick-off.
Island City coach Gert Toring was more than happy with the point City earned from their goalless draw with Hotspurs at the Dyke.
"Hotspurs are not an easy team to beat in their fortress and coming away with a point at least is what we planned for," Toring said.
Newly promoted Central Acemates, who are certain to be crowned Pefa Premier League champions, were given a run for their money by Camper United and had to be satisfied with a share of the points following their 1-1 draw.
Despatch Pioneers, who had a disappointing season last year, got off to an excellent start beating Showvillage United 1-0.
