USSA narrowly lose out on U21 SAB League crown

Team Gauteng out-shoot defending champions USSA to lift the U21 SAB League Champions’ trophy on Sunday afternoon, after they defeated USSA 4-1 on penalties.

What an exhilarating end to the SAB U21 National Football Championship as the encounter between football giants USSA and Gauteng proceeded to penalties, after the game ended with both teams scoring 3 goalsby full-time. And one thing is for sure, that the future of South African Football is very bright!

Team USSA’s road to the final:
Group Matches:
USSA 2 - 1 Western Cape
USSA 1 - 1 Kwa-Zulu Natal
USSA 1 - 1 Free State
USSA 4 - 1 North West

Team USSA finished undefeated, and as group winners with 8 points, securing their spot in the semi-final.

In the semi-final USSA took on the highly spirited Mpumalanga. Yet again, the gusty USSA won the match 5 - 2 to set up a third date with Gauteng in the final of the SAFA SAB U21 National Championships since its inception. In the final, USSA took an early lead in the opening 15 minutes of the game thanks to Trinity Tshivhase’s brace, only for Gauteng’s game-changing Yusuf Bunting to score an all-important hat-trick. Bongani Mabena went on to score the equaliser for USSA in the final 2 minutes of the game.

With a full-time score of 3-3 both teams took to the posts to decide who would lift the trophy. Unfortunately defending champions USSA went down 4-1 on penalties. Truly a great performance by Coach George Tenoff and the boys and a superb come-back from Gauteng.

The final was broadcasted live on SABC 1 and took place at the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto.
