2013-04-19 00:00

THE Nashua Maritzburg United Midlands Schools Soccer Challenge has its first two semi-finalists after the second legs of two quarter-finals took place at Harry Gwala Stadium yesterday.

There was drama in the day’s first match as a penalty shootout saw Haythorne Secondary advance to the last four after normal time produced a 1-1 draw against Linpark High — a mirror of the result between the sides in the first leg.

Haythorne scored on the stroke of half-time to go 1-0 up through Vuma Hadebe, but Linpark won a penalty with just one minute left in normal time. Cameron McKay slotted home the spot kick to give his side a lifeline.

With the tournament not catering for extra time, the match went straight to penalties, which Haythorne won 4-1.

In second quarter-final, Mehlokazulu Secondary went into their home leg against Ixopo High with a 2-0 lead following the first leg. Mpumelelo Sithole put the contest to bed when he scored to give his side a 1-0 win on the day and a 3-0 aggregate win overall.

Yesterday’s results:

Linpark 1 (2) - (2) 1 Haythorne. *Haythorne won 4-1 on penalties.

Mehlokazulu 1 (3) - (0) 0 Ixopo

Today’s second leg quarter-final fixtures:

Sobantu (1) v Alex (2)

Maritzburg College (2) v Carter High (1)
