History of shocks in the Nedback Cup

Posted: 22 February 2013 Time: 10:54

The Nedbank Cup pits the minnows of the game against the giants of the Premiership and there have been some shock results over the last four decades. 

1971: Pimville Champions beat Lamontville Golden Arrows, one of the founder members of the NPSL, 6-2 in their Life Challenge Cup quarter-final after the two teams had drawn their first encounter 1-1 after extra-time but then refused to hold a penalty shoot-out, preferring to replay the match instead. This is still a record loss for a top league side against lower league opposition.

1978: A hat-trick from Johannes Simelane helped Alexandria Blackpool beat Arcadia 4-3 in the quarter-final of the Mainstay Cup to become the first side from lower leagues to reach the semi-final of the major cup competition in the multi-racial era. Blackpool lost to Chiefs in the semi-final, who in turn lost to Wits in the Final.

1980: Highlands Park were League champions in 1980 but they fell in the first round of the Mainstay Cup to Mamelodi United, whose scored the winning goal in extra-time through Jan Msiza to win 3-2 at Mamelodi. They later won promotion to the top flight as well.

1991: Zola Young Stars beat Orlando Pirates 5-3 on post-match penalties after a thrilling 3-3 draw in the first round of the Bob Save Super Bowl. The Bucs team that day include Bernard Lushozi, Johnny Masegela, Aubrey Lekwane, Lawrence Maake and current Maritzburg coach Ian Palmer.

1996: Hellenic finished in the top six in the League but lost in the first round of the Super Bowl 1-0 to Park United on the night the PSL was officially launched. It was the second successive season the amateurs had taken a top-flight scalp. Hellenic lost to Manneberg Dolphins in the first round the next year as well.

1997: Gavin Hunt took First Division Seven Stars all the way to the Super Bowl semi-final as they beat Umtata Bush Bucks 3-1 in the last eight but then lost on penalties to Sundowns in the semi-finals. Some 5,000 packed into Nyanga stadium, which could only hold 2,000, for the win over Bucks.

1998: Bloemfontein Young Tigers had two easy rounds but then beat Santos 2-0 in the quarter-final before Chiefs knocked out in the last four. It was after that game that the Cape side bought Abram Raselemane, who went onto play for Bafana Bafana, from Tigers.

2003: Surprise Moriri and Koeketso Mmotong were unknowns from the Second Division when they scored the goals that beat Pirates 2-0 in the second round of the Absa Cup. Owen da Gama’s Stars were then beaten by Jomo Cosmos in the quarter-finals but won promotion the same season.

2008: Mpumalanga Black Aces became the first lower league side since Florida Albion in the old whites-only league in 1973 to reach the final of the major South African knockout competition. But they played three lower league sides before upsetting Free State Stars in the semi-final.

2009: The University of Pretoria became the first lower league side since Seshego Stonebreakers in the late 1970s to beat Chiefs in a cup tie, winning a thrilling 4-3 triumph in the second round with the decisive goal netted by Phenyo Mongala. AmaTuks then upset Celtic and Ajax Cape Town to reach the Final.

2010: Puk Tawana started a run of upsets with a triumph over Platinum Stars in the first round and FC Cape Town then beat Chiefs at Botshabelo in the second round with a stunning goal from teenager Lyle Lakay.

2011: Part-timers Baroka FC beat Swallows and then Chiefs on their way to the semi-finals. They defeat both sides 2-1, Swallows in the second round of and Chiefs in the quarter-finals. They remain the only two instances of a third-tier side beating top-flight opposition in the history of the domestic game.

My team KC can be all over the stats when it comes to be beaten by these small teams, with the exception of Tuks what happenned to the others they all vanish into air. The stats shows that neighbours also got their turn in 1991 and 2003 compared to 2009 and 2011 for KC.
