Chiefs beat Ajax in Cup Final

Kaizer Chiefs beat Ajax Cape Town in Telkom Knockout Cup Final

Posted: 10 April 2010 Time: 10:14 pm

Kaizer Chiefs beat Ajax Cape town 2-1 in the Telkom Knockout Cup final on Saturday night.

The Chiefs goals were scored by Mandla Masango and Knowledge Musona while Diyo Sibisi pulled a goal back for Ajax.

It was perhaps not quite the action packed and thrilling Final neutrals will have hoped for, but the majority of fans at the Absa Stadium, most of them Chiefs supporters, would not have been complaining.

Ajax started the game in fine style, their pace and purpose in attack putting the Amakhosi under severe pressure early on.

The Cape side should have been ahead in the opening 10 minutes, but Dipsy Selolwane’s shot was tipped over the bar by Arthur Bartman, while Deniss Ivanovs flashed a header wide with the goal at his mercy.

Selolwane then found himself clear through on goal after a superb pass from George Maluleka, but took too long to get his shot away and Bartman did well to block his effort.

The team in gold barely mustered an attack in the opening 20 stages of the game, yet they took the lead in the 20th minute when Punch Masenamela’s shot from a tight angle was parried by Hans Vonk into the path of Mandla Masango, who made no mistake from eight yards out.

Following the goal the game stagnated somewhat chances remained rare in final 20 minutes of the first half.

It took however less than a minute of second half action for Chiefs to double their advantage when a mistake from Clayton Daniels was clinically punished by Knowledge Musona.

Ajax had a decent chance to pull one back 10 minutes later, but Daniels and Ivanovs got in each others’ way with the result that the latter’s header was a poor one.

The Urban Warriors began to enjoy more of the ball possession but it was Chiefs who had the confidence and the bit in between their teeth; Vonk had to be alert to keep out a 61st minute shot from Masango.

Paulse though was nearly in at the other end, but found himself denied by a brave block by Bartman.

With 22 minutes to go it should most certainly have been 3-0 to the Gauteng side, but Masango put the ball over the bar from less than five yards out after a great cross from Jimmy Tau.

In the 82nd minute Nhlanhla Shabalala was close to pulling one back for Ajax, but the outstanding Bartman made another superb save.

The Cape side kept on coming though and when Paulse squared the ball back across goal in the 85th minute, Bartman couldn’t hold on and Diyo Sibisi thundered the ball home from close range.

Ajax tried hard to try and carve out an equalising chance in the closing minutes, but the Chiefs defence held firm to ensure the Glamour Boys won.
