Bela-Bela’s Metro Cash ‘n Carry FC edged out Cashbuild FC 5-4 on penalties during the finals of the annual Top Eight tournament played on Saturday 14 April.

The closely-contested finals ended at 2-all after regulation time, forcing the whistleman to take the game to the dreaded lottery of penalties.

Metro Cash ‘n Carry FC players were awarded bronze medals and a trophy while the Cashbuild FC troops received silver medals and a trophy.

Third-placed Merion FC players received bronze medals, after winning on a walkover against Spar FC, a team which failed to turn up at the tournament.

Teams taking part in the popular Top Eight tournament were drawn from community-based football teams.

According to the Bela-Bela Community Soccer League chairperson, Moji Malebye, the Top Eight tournament was the initiative of former local mayor, Freddy Hlungwane.

“We need much more activities like this in the community,” he said.

In the meantime, fixtures for the Bela-Bela Community Soccer League were scheduled to kick off Tuesday 1 May.
