Boland Ajax clinch Easter cup

The team from Boland Ajax Football Club (BAFC) walked away with the title and bragging rights for a year, after being crowned Easter Tournament champions on Easter Monday 17 April.

The team sealed a 2-1 victory in the tournament’s final, thanks to a double brace from Zamikhaya Ntsabo against Mountain Sweepers FC.

The annual tournament was hosted by the the Breede Valley Local Football Association (LFA) in partnership with the Cape Winelands District Municipality. This four-day spectacular produced fireworks from the first kick-off for the current champs, as they started their campaign on a high note by beating Juventus from De Doorns (2-0) in their first group game. Their dominance didn’t end there as they thumped Young Tigers FC in their second game to clinch a massive 4-0 victory against the Zwelethemba-based side.

Standing comfortably on second place of Group A after their second win, the young Boland Ajax side didn’t waste time in the bid to qualify for semi-finals as they recorded a 3-1 over Zwelethemba All Stars in the third and final pool outing.

Facing the defending champions United Pirates (Abaqobi) in the semi-final, Boland Ajax’s leading goal scorer Ntsabo netted his third goal of the tournament as his side confidently advanced to the final with a 1-0 victory in the bag.

Ntsabo’s shining performance continued in the final as he eyed the coveted prize of the tournament’s top goal scorer. But he fell agonisingly short by only one goal, he scored two goals to take his team to a 2-1 over Mountain Sweepers.

Speaking to Kasi Vision after the victory, Boland Ajax chairperson Tumisang Thibogang admitted the club’s juniors and seniors worked very hard in preparation for the tournament.

“I’m proud of all our teams for showing hunger and discipline from the beginning to the end,” he said. “They’ve actually responded positively to our call for some silverware. Our focus shifts to the league and being successful on that front.”

Only goal difference separates Boland Ajax, currently in fourth place (12 points) in the Breede Valley LFA Promotional League with 12 points, from top-of-the-log team Young Ideas from De Doorns.
