Ajax Cape Town absolutely crushed Mainstay United on Sunday afternoon, beating the lower division team 9-1 in a Nedbank Cup, Last 32 match at the GWK Stadium.

It was a blistering opening half from the Urban Warriors who opened the scoring after only ten minutes courtesy of a clinical strike from Fanklin Cale, 1-0.

In the 20th minute Cecil Lolo also had the ball in the back of the net after being slipped in behind the Mainstay defence, but his goal was disallowed for off-sides.

Five minutes later Ajax did find their second goal when Toriq Losper made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 2-0.

On the half hour mark Cale found his second of the afternoon after a good finish from the edge of the 18-yard box, 3-0.

Moments later Ajax were at it again with a swift passing move slicing through the Mainstay defence, like a hot knife through butter, as Losper finished it off with aplomb to make it 4-0.

Sadly, Losper had to leave the field injured about five minutes later and was replaced by Robin Ngalande.

The Urban Warriors continued to dictate the flow of play, but failed to add to the scoreline before the break.

The game continued in the same fashion after the restart and Noah Sadaoui should have found Ajax’s fifth in the 56th minute when he was slipped through on goal by Ngalande, but he failed to beat the keeper in a one-on-one.

It was definitely not Sadaoui’s afternoon in front of goal as he struck the woodwork with a 16-yard shot four minutes later.

Finally, Ajax did find their fifth goal in the 68th minute when Ngalande turned home a cross from Thabiso Nkoana, 5-0.

Five minutes later it was 6-0 to the Urban Warriros thanks to fantastic strike from Abbubaker Mobara.

Sadaoui did finally find his goal in the 75th minute when he broke through on goal and this time made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 7-0.

Ajax took their foot off the pedal after that and allowed Mainstay to grab a consolation goal in the 80th minute, but their joy was short-lived as Sadaoui found his second goal minute later to make it 8-1.

Ajax did not let up in the dying minutes of the game and Ngalande found his secon din th e89th minute to make it 9-1.
