Orlando Pirates win U-17 Engen Knockout Challenge


After the first team was downed 2-0 in the season’s curtain-raiser on Saturday, their junior side made sure to make amends after a penalty shootout victory over Gauteng rivals Bidvest Wits.

Wits, who qualified for the final for a third year in succession, had beaten Mamelodi Sundowns on penalties in the semi-finals, while Bucs had emerged penalty shootout victors over Soweto All Stars earlier in the day.

It went down to penalties once again in the final following a 1-1 scoreline after full-time, with the Soweto side taking the title 6-5 via spot-kicks to claim gold.
