Silver Spurs secure showdown

2015-11-03 06:00

The Nedbank Cup for Safa Cape Town’s regional third division amateur sides started in all earnest this past weekend.

In the pick of the action, Silver Spurs showed some early season promise in their 4-0 victory in the quarter final against Jumbo Giants played at Johnson Road field in Rylands on Sunday.

After edging out D&G Orient in the first play-off games on Saturday, Silver Spurs entered the next round against Jumbo Giants, who had eliminated the University of the Western Cape 2-0 in their earlier match for the cup.

The Silvertown outfit made their intentions clear from the outset and took their crafty offensive game to their opponents, scoring a goal on each side of the uprights.

Nizaam Miller once again proved to be a pain in the neck of defenders as he mesmerised his opponents with his dribbling skills and deft touches.

Miller scored thrice while Elrico Corneillison added the fourth goal for good measure.

Silver Spurs will face Bayhill United of Mitchell’s Plain in the semi-final at venue and date yet to be decided.

Bayhill United beat Rebels 4-1 in the quarter final, with Marlon Opperman (2), Fernando Louis and Lawrence Nxwayi (own goal) netting for the Mitchell’s Plain side.

The other semi-final will be decided between Shockwaves and Hout Bay United after their quarter final berth victories over Junction Rovers (4-1) and Riverside Rangers (2-1) respectively.
