Cape Town Spurs are the champions of the Bayhill Premier Cup after convincingly defeating FN Rangers St Agnes 4-1 in the final at the Athlone Stadium on Monday.

Both teams flexed their attacking prowess throughout the tournament, but Spurs also showcased their exceptional defence by conceding only two goals. Rangers did almost as well, conceding only four before the final.

The silverware showdown was largely dominated by Cape Town Spurs, who took an early first-half lead after their captain Denzel du Plessis expertly deceived the goalkeeper from the penalty spot.

Just six minutes after falling behind, Rangers had an opportunity to equalise, when they, too, were awarded a penalty. Spurs’ goalkeeper Ethan Engel pulled off a remarkable save, however, to keep Rangers off the scoreboard.

The teams turned with Spurs 1-0 to the good after controlling the first half of the contest.

Then, in the latter part of the second half, the addition of Faiz Abrahams heaped pressure on Rangers as he challenged them with his attacking runs. Spurs quickly capitalised on their momentum, netting from a set-piece rebound through Jenairho Brock.

Comfortably in charge, Spurs came close to making it 3-0 with a long-range effort narrowly missing the mark. However, when Jeandre Gaffoor was given space and time on the edge of the box, it did indeed become 3-0.

Sergio Fransch struck a consolation goal for Rangers to make 1-3, but Spurs maintained a disciplined defensive structure, which made it difficult for Rangers to penetrate their defences.

Spurs also had the final say, with Faiz Abrahams making the final score 4-1 in the Cape Town derby.
