Saturday, the second day of the Kloof High School Football Tournament, brought with it increased intensity as the competition headed into its knockout stages.

Some top teams were eliminated, which served to underline just how tough the competition was, while others grabbed their opportunities and sparkled in must-win contests.

Carter High School, top in Group A, went head-to-head with Northwood School in their final game. It ended in a 1-1 draw, with both teams stubbornly resisting the other’s challenge.

Moving on to the knockout stage, Carter, the KZN Inland champions, triumphed 2-0 over Nilgiri to secure a spot in the next round of the competition.

Northwood, however, were ousted by HTS Louis Botha. The Bloemfontein school was the dominant force in Group E, winning all of their matches while establishing a significant goal difference, which underlined their championship credentials.

In a thrilling match, Vuyiswa Mtolo faced off against Nqabakazulu. They kept everyone on the edge of their seats with a fantastic clash.

Both had impressed in the group stages, but neither could break through in their knockout showdown. It finished 0-0 and, thus, went to a penalty shootout, where Nqabakazulu claimed victory by a 3-1 margin from the spot.

Speaking of impressive teams, Virginia asserted their dominance by topping the goal scoring charts. They completed their pool games by crushing Ferrum 8-0 to set up a meeting with Tuks Sport, who sneaked past Pinetown, winning 6-5 from the penalty spot after the sides had finished regulation time deadlocked at 0-0.

Paul Roos, a strong contender, exited after a 1-2 loss to Westville. Meanwhile, Glenwood triumphed 4-1 over Toti, and Maritzburg College beat the hosts, Kloof High School 3-0.
