Before the match begins both teams observe a moment of silence to late former Bafana Bafana Afcon winning coach Clive Barker. The only South African coach to win Afcon in 1996.

Glenwood boys dominated the first half but Port Shepstone keeper was producing brilliant saves to keep his team in the game.

The game went deadlock 0-0 at halftime as both teams could not find the net.

The second half saw Port Shepstone take the game to Glenwood but the keeper was doing the same as the opposite keeper by making brilliant saves.

After 90 minutes of intense finals both teams could not find the back of the net on regular time all thanks to both keepers of these teams by putting in brilliant performances.

Ultimately Glenwood High school went on to win the game in sudden death penalty shoot-out 4-3.
