SuperSport defeated Chippa United 4-2 on penalties, after it ended 0-0 after 120 minutes of football on Saturday evening.

"It was a fantastic cup tie. I think it was almost three games in one. It started off quite well and then we had a 30-minute period,b where they keep the ball quite well," Baxter told SuperSport after the game.
 
"I didn't think they created a lot chances, but we didn't have the ball and they had the momentum. 
 
"We changed at halftime, we changed the shape of the team. We started slowly to get back into the game and after 30 minutes we started to grind them down.
 
"Going into extra time I was just hoping the legs will hold up and I thought the character was fantastic and then you get penalties. That's a totally different game.
 
"They held their nerve. Ron (Williams) was fantastic, the two saves he pulled off are top, top draw."
