Our Nedbank Cup game went to penalties to decide a winner at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium tonight.
After the initial 90 minutes of play, the score was 1-1 after Majoro cancelled out Micheal Gumede’s first half goal in the second minute of referee’s additional time.
This put the game into extra time.
After the two additional halves of 15 minutes, neither side was able to gain an upper hand in the score forcing the game to penalties to decide an outcome.
While Sibisi, Sabelo, Lung and Sibiya converted, it was Phiri on our fourth attempt who fired fractionally high, finding the bar.
AmaZulu managed to convert all of their attempts, winning the match off Memela’s last penalty attempt.
The game in general delivered all that a Derby should and was entertaining from the first whistle to the last.
We will regroup and refocus on the DSTv Premiership this week as we have a game on Friday night against Stellenbosch FC.
