Record-setting AmaZulu do it again


But it is not the first time the Durban-based side have racked up a runaway score in cup competition.

AmaZulu had twice before set new standards with runaway wins in cup competition.

In 1976, the team beat amateur outfit Bizana Lucky Stars 16-0 in the first round of the Benson & Hedges Cup with Moffat Zuma scoring four times.

AmaZulu led 9-0 at half-time.

Stars took off goalkeeper Vuyani Mphakama after conceding the sixth goal but his replacement Charles Louw went on to let in another 10.

Ten years later AmaZulu hammered Ford Pirates from the Eastern Cape 16-0, leading 7-0 at half-time of their Mainstay Cup first round match.

Archie Radebe scored five times and there were also hat tricks for Julius Chirwa and Joel Faya, who is now assistant coach at the club.

The last of 16 goals was a penalty converted by AmaZulu goalkeeper Paddy Leering.

The last team to score 10 goals or more in a match was Wits University, who beat amateur outfit Cardiff City from Eldorado Park 14-0 in the second round of the Mainstay cup.

Wits’ team included Zane Moosa, Rod Anley and Frank McGrellis.
