2017-09-05 06:01

Mondale High School were crowned champions of the Kay Motsepe u.19 schools cup in the Cape Town region when they beat Robinvale 1-0 in a tightly contested final at Elsbury Park on Wednesday.

The cup is a countrywide tournament being closely watched by top soccer administrators hoping to hook fresh stars.

“We are very pleased to host the Safa Kay Motsepe schools inter-regional finals,” says Charles Esau, councillor for the Bishop Lavis area, where the tournament was hosted.

A capacity crowd witnessed the entertaining soccer of the cup, which is also a stepping stone to a world of playing opportunities.

The learners from Atlantis, with their positive approach to the match, were unlucky after their strikers failed to score from vital chances.

Mondale, from Mitchell’s Plain, waited eagerly for the gap after a goalless first half. Aa-meen Ockers, the centre forward, steered his team to a well-deserved trophy when he scored the winning goal.

“We would love to thank all involved in making this tournament a great success. We thank schools that entrusted us with these boys’ soccer-playing future by joining our region in the tournament of school soccer development. “May this soccer relationship continue to prosper for the better of school soccer in the Cape Town region,” says Bennet Bailey, Safa Cape Town vice-president and head of the school soccer department.

Mondale will represent the region at the national championship in October.
