Ajax Cape Town are set to face SuperSport United in the final of the SAFA Under 19 Champs staged in Bloemfontein.
The two teams will battle it out for champion gold on Thursday 1 May 2014 at Clive Solomon Stadium.
Many of the home crowed supporters were hoping for one of the Free State clubs, either Bloemfontein Celtic or Free State Stars to edge their way to the finals to face Ajax but it was not to be as SuperSport United beat the home team Celtic to book their ticket to the final, whilst the young Urban Warriors convincingly overcame Free State Stars by 3-1.
Sidney Mtshweni opened the scoring for Matsatsantsa in the 21st minute. However, the Pretoria side suffered a setback in the 37th minute when Jaisen Clifford was given his marching orders following a second bookable offence. Unfortunately he will sit out the final.
Despite playing with 10 men, Supersport United rallied to get the assurance goal in the 45th minute through Nelson Maluleke.
Ajax captain Yagan Sasman led by example when he scored his side’s first goal in the 23rd minute for a deserved 1-0 half time lead.
The second stanza saw the coastal side continuing from where they left off when Curtly Poole made it 2-0 soon after interval.
Free State pulled one back six minutes later but any hopes of a remarkable comeback were dashed when Ajax scored through Olwethu Nguye midway through the second half.
SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan and several SAFA NEC members are expected to attend the final on Thursday.
Free State and Bloemfontein Celtic will face off in the battle for bronze later on Wednesday, (30 April) at 16h00.
