FC Tafelzucht is making waves in Safa Cape Town’s lucrative and popular Coca-Cola Cup competition.

The minnows of the Mitchell’s Plain LFA are on the warpath and most certainly on the road to fame and glory following another cup success at the Rooikrans sports complex in Grassy Park on ­Sunday.

Barry Africa and his upbeat FC Tafelzucht charges continued with their mission to torment the big guns after Grassy Park United were humiliated in a 6-1 loss after the teams were 1-1 heading into half-time.

The match in the round of the last 64 had a bit of everything.

Though the gutsy favourites Grassy Park United – under the coaching expertise of Shamiel Dulvie – put up a good fight, especially in the first 45 minutes, they fell short in the final third.

FC Tafelzucht took the game to their opponents and by the half-time whistle should have held a comfortable 3-0 cushion.

There were quite a number of attacking raids by Sawaal Lakay, Cleveland Abrahams and midfielders Waleed Krotz and Ebrahiem Theunissen. The opposition’s rearguard and goalkeeper Waseem Taylor were pressurised with regular monotony. The Mitchell’s Plain side wasted good scoring ­opportunities.

FC Tafelzucht opened their account through a goal by Abrahams and shortly thereafter Grassy Park United levelled the score via a penalty by Taswell Oliver.

The Mitchell’s Plain side then came up to full flight and attacked from every direction, adding a further five goals through the efforts of Lance Adams, Abrahams, Krotz, Ryan Adams and Lakay that completely demolished the Grassy Park outfit.

Coach Africa is in high spirits and confident that his players are delivering the goods on the field and planning their next challenge.

Dulvie, the mentor of GP United, was quick to comment that the FC Tafelzucht side deserved their victory “as they played well in all areas while we were not at our best and once they piled on the pressure we were completely out of it”.

Nevertheless, the Tafelzucht side will meet their Mitchell’s Plain LFA neighbours Leeds Lentegeur in the next round of the last 32.

The Leeds Lentegeur side was in action at the Grassy Park venue and annihilated Mfuleni United 6-0.

Thanks to a hat-trick by Rafiek Nel, Ashley Arnold (2) and Gary Havenga the Leeds Lentegeur side celebrated a goal feast.

In another enterprising game, twice-crowned Coke Cup champions (in 1996 and 2000) Liverpool-Portland beat Mighty Peace 2-0.

Tyrone Powell scored a goal on either side of the goalpost.

Liverpool will face Greenwood Athletic in their next challenge following Greenwood’s 3-1 victory against Citizens at Langa Stadium.

Rygersdal, the 2006 champions, won the battle of the all Cape Town Tygerberg LFA derby with a resounding 3-1 victory against Bellville City. They will be up against Two Oceans Academy in another Cape Town Tygerberg LFA derby encounter.
