POLOKWANE, (CAJ News) – CAPE Town City beat close rivals SuperSport United 2-1 to clinch the 2016 Telkom Knock-Out championship in a thrilling encounter strongly contested at Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

Two goals from Aubrey Ngoma (12th) and Judas Moseamedi (73rd) were enough to see the Mother City based club lift the coveted R14.2 million Telkom trophy while for their effort pocked a cool R4 million first prize money.

SuperSport, who dominated the entire match scored their brilliant goal through Zimbabwe international Kigston Nkhatha (71st), but that could not deny coach Eric Tinkler’s side from winning the title.

Though SuperSport Coach Stuart Baxter was tactically superior, his side lacked the final killer punch upfront, especially Thuso Phala and Jeremy Brockie, who struggled with their game.

On the other hand, Ngoma and captain Lebogang Manyama were exciting to watch for Cape Town City as they always caused anxious moments for their Pretoria based opponents.

For winning the silver, SuperSport United walked away with R1,5 million while first semi-finalists pocketed R750, 000 with second quarter-finalists receiving R400 000.
