Our Nedbank Cup game went to penalties to determine a winner at Dobsonville this afternoon.
After playing a full 90 minutes where we were frustrated by a determined team who played their game in the hopes of going to penalties, they executed their game plan well and came out victorious.
In the first 45 both sides played some decent flowing football and ended up going into the break on an even score.
But the plan for the home side came to light in the second stanza as VUT parked the bus and defended their hearts out to look to force extra time and penalties.
We did manage to score a second goal with 2 minutes of standard time left, but had a lapse in concentration and allowed the host team to equalise just 2 minutes later
Once again, after extra time had been played we were still drawn 2all and it was penalties that would be the decider.
We answered each of the 5 penalties but it was the 6th, taken by Mtshali that missed the target and gave the Vaal team the win for the afternoon
