IT was all smiles and ecstasy for the Charles Morgan Combined School players after they defeated Nomandi Junior Secondary School 4-2 on penalties during the Copa Coca Cola U/15 Provincial Finals that took place at the Wolfson Stadium in KwaZakhele on Saturday.

The seven provincial regions that took each other on were divided into two streams.

The regions that formed Stream A were Cowan High School (Nelson Mandela Bay), Telle Junction Junior Secondary School (Joe Gqabi), Nomandi Junior Secondary School (OR Tambo) and Arthur Nganga Junior Secondary School (Alfred Nzo).

The regions that formed Stream B were Velile Junior Secondary School (Sarah Baartman), Ekuphumleni Senior Secondary School (Chris Hani) and Charles Morgan Combined School (Amathole).

The tournament started off in a round-robin format in each stream, where the group leaders played in the finals.

Former Moroka Swallows striker Hareapa Simba Marumo was at the games for the initiative “Which Part Will You Play” in search of an “underdog” (a player with natural talent and good character).

Marumo said the project envisions a “Which Part Will You Play” all-star team, made up of well-rounded young South Africans with immense talent carrying values that young footballers should aspire to.

“I have selected one player who had made a huge difference during the tournament. This tournament is the right platform to identify talent.

“Here in the Eastern Cape is immense talent and it was very difficult to select a player during this event.

In Stream A, Nomandi JSS and Cowan HS had seven points in their group, but the OR Tambo District school had a better goal difference than the hosts.

In Stream B, Charles Morgan CS won all their games. Fans saw Nomandi JSS losing 4-2 on penalties to Charles Morgan CS after the game ended in a deadlock.

The Amathole School walked away with a trophy and gold medals while OR Tambo School received silver medals. All the regions received new branded kits.

Nomandi JSS player, Simbongile Hanise, won the “Underdog” award.
