THE Golden Aces and Young Teenagers both won the last group stage games of the Safa Nelson Mandela Bay SAB regional promotional playoffs that took place at New Brighton Oval Stadium on Saturday.

The Aces started their campaign in grand style when they shared a 1-1 draw with PE Sundowns at Zwide Stadium last Sunday.

The Teenagers were in top form when they thumped the Young Chiefs 8-3 in their opening game at Zwide Stadium last Sunday as well. The Aces clearly showed their intentions to collect three points when they dug deep to beat Helenvale 2-1 in their scintillating last group stage contest at New Brighton Stadium on Saturday.

The Teenagers, on the other hand, salvaged a hard-fought 2-2 draw when they faced Young Callies at the New Brighton Oval Stadium on Saturday.

The Mabayibone Strikers, who defeated the Hearts 1-0 in their opening group clash, booked themselves a spot in the semifinals following their 2-0 victory over Real Hunters on Saturday.

The Highland Spurs registered a hardfought 1-0 win over the NUBS.

Since the NUBS lodged a protest against Highland Spurs, who they claim allegedly fielded eight unregistered players, the semifinals were not played on Sunday.

In the midweek, the Hearts suffered a 2-1 loss to Real Hunters at Gelvan Stadium, while PE Sundowns played to a goalless draw against Helenvale at the Gelvan Stadium on Wednesday evening. Young Callies rubbed salt into the wounds of Young Chiefs, whom they drubbed 4-0 at the Zwide Stadium on Wednesday evening as well.

The Highland Spurs overcame Njoli United Brothers (NUBS) 2-0 at the Zwide Stadium last Wednesday evening.
