Orlando Pirates crashed out of the MTN8 after losing 4-3 on penalties to SuperSport United in their quarter-final encounter on Saturday evening.

Both sides came into the encounter having registered their first wins of the Absa Premiership during the week.

The Buccaneers enjoyed a lot of possession in the early stages and they went ahead on 14 minutes when Augustine Mulenga combined with Justin Shonga before poking the ball past Ronwen Williams.

SuperSport nearly restored parity on 27 minutes when Teboho Mokoena shaved the outside of the upright with a stunning strike from distance.

However, the visitors were not to be denied on 34 minutes as Dean Furman combined with Evans Rusike before firing a superb left-footed strike past Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Both sides went in search of more goals in the closing stages of the half, but they were unable to create ccut chances and went into the break level at 1-1.

Zimbabwean forward Evans Rusike gave United the lead four minutes into the second stanza with a cracking low strike from close range after being gifted a lot of space, 1-2.

Gladwin Shitolo equalised for Bucs on the hour-mark, deflecting in a strike fromby Xolani Mlambo into the back of the net, 2-2.

The match was in the balance in the last 20 minutes with end to end attacks as both sides were looking for the winner.

Vincent Pule had a glorious chance to seal the match for Bucs five minutes before time, but he got under a half-volley and his effort sailed over the bar.

Ultimately there could not be a winner in regulation time and the match went into extra time.

Matsatsantsa were dangerous on counter-attacks midway through the first stanza of extra time as Pirates were pushing too high. The two sides could not be separated in the first stanza of extra time.

Pirates were awarded a penalty seven minutes before time with Mulenga taking the spot-kick but SuperSport goalkeeper Ronwen Williams made the save.

The two sides could not be separated as a result and the match went into penalty shoot-out, where the visitors went on to win 4-3.
