Ajax cape Town lose to SuperSport United in Telkom Knockout

Posted: 20 October 2012 Time: 17:46

Mabhuti Khenyeza scores the decisive penalty against his former team as SuperSport United knocked Ajax Cape Town out of the Telkom Knockout Cup.

The Urban Warriors had taken the lead through Bradley Grobler's penalty, but the visitors levelled through captain Thabo September – only his third ever professsional goal.

SuperSport finished the stronger but, after extra-time couldn't separate the sides, it went to penalties where Ronwen Williams saved twice to help his side into the quarter-finals.

It was the first time SuperSport turned out since the tragic passing of their long serving member Thomas Madigage, and a minute’s silence was observed before kick-off.

Thulani Hlatswayo stung the side-netting in the 21st minute following a powered run up the right flank, while Paul Rusike’s volley was comfortably dealt with by Williams just before the break.

In between that, Moffat Mdluli missed a great chance when he fluffed his shot six yards from goal, while Khenyeza and Franklin Cale also came close a few times.

The game changed face just nine minutes into the second half when Franklin Cale conceded a penalty following a handball inside the box, and Grobler made no mistake from the spot.

SuperSport continued to press and were rewarded on 77 minutes when September headed home from close range after Sibusiso Zuma had flicked on Sameegh Doutie’s cross.

Zuma thought he had managed to give his side the lead straight from kick-off in extra-time when he headed the ball into the back of the net, only for it to be flagged offside.

Gavin Hunt was in anguish when Khenyeza rounded Westerveld at the near post, but failed to take the lead when his shot stung the side-netting. However, he held his nerve in the shoot-out to score the decisive goal after Williams had denied both Grobler and Lolo.

Supersport and Free State Stars should be the teams that we keep in our radar and look forward to playing up against in the next round of this tournament.

Cowardice is not a See Robber's quality,these teams have knocked us out of cup competitions previously and we have to settle the score for all times sake.
In doing that we will also be sending a firm message out to any naysayers and team that dares to challenge us or stand in our way as we are still on a quest to become the first ever team to be Triple Treble Champions plus achieve success in Africa once again.
