THE Northern Cape is well on its way to determining which of its high schools will represent the province at the national play-offs for the Kay Motsepe u.19 Cup, which will be played in Soweto in September.

This weekend all five regions of the Northern Cape held their regional play-offs to decide the schools who will compete for a place at the provincial play-offs to be held on 29 August in Upington.

This competition is held under the auspices of the South African Schools Football Association (Sasfa) and is sponsored by the Motsepe Foundation.

In the Frances Baard District five schools are from each of the four municipalities, with the Sol Plaatje District having two slots due to the number of schools it has.

In the games played at Solly’s Grounds, the Boresetse, Tetlanyo, Mogomotsi, Pampierstad and Rietvale High School were pitted against one another in a round robin format as the schools from the Frances Baard District and the school with more points was the one which qualified to the provincials.

In this case it was Tetlanyo which managed to amass more points after walloping Boresetse 7-6 in penalties after a 1-1 draw.

In the first game Boresetse beat Mogo-motsi by 2-0 and in the second game Tetlanyo beat Pampierstad by 2-0. The last game between Rietvale and Tetlanyo saw Rietvale give Telanyo a 1-0 lashing.

According to Galerekwe Semau, the Sasfa provincial coordinator who was deployed to the Frances Baard District, the games played there were successful, the schools played their hearts out and good new players are emerging
