DE­FEND­ING cham­pi­ons High­land Spurs were bun­dled out of the Safa-NMB SAB leg of the Ned­bank Cup at the Zwide Sta­dium Sta­dium on Sun­day.

In one of the two Nodefa der­bies on the day, Spurs lost 2-1 to Des­patch Pioneers.

In the first match of the day, Young Killers beat Amarhamba United 3-2 and will meet Pioneers in the next round of the com­pe­ti­tion.

Killers took an early lead when mid­fielder Zuk­isani Vayo net­ted five min­utes into the match.

Mid­way in the half, Bhon­gol­wethu Ma­jali made it 2-0.

A goal by Stephen Terblanche min­utes be­fore the half-time whis­tle gave Killers a 3-0 lead.

Af­ter the break, a de­ter­mined United took the ini­tia­tive and struck back with two goals but failed to find the equaliser.

In true knock­out cup tra­di­tion, two matches went into penalty shootouts.

Cuwen Prince fol­lowed in the foot­steps of his fa­ther – for­mer pro­fes­sional goal­keeper Bren­don Prince – to make three bril­liants saves, help­ing Fairview Rovers beat Morn­ing Stars 4-2.

In the last match of the day, goal­keeper Mzwandile Mvun­y­iswa stopped two penal­ties, while his team­mates con­verted to give NMU Madibaz a 5-3 win over Cam­per United.

Mother­well Academy were thumped 3-0 by PE Sun­downs.
