Kermit Erasmus's hat-trick gave the South African national under-17 team a well-deserved 5-1 victory over Zimbabwe in the African Under-17 Championships qualifier at Katlehong Stadium on Saturday.

The home side will meet their opponents in the second leg in Zimbabwe next month.

South Africa showed their intentions clearly in the 19th minute when Daylon Claasen opened the scoring with a beauty from an awkward angle.

With no answer from the visitors in the second half, Majimbo's Thulane Ngcepe increased the margin to 2-0 in the 47th minute .

Erasmus increased the score to 3-0 for the hosts in the 50th minute before striker Knowledge Musona pulled one back for Zimbabwe nine minutes later.

Erasmus, who was a constant thorn in the Zimbabwe defences, scored the fourth and fifth goals in the 86th and 90th minutes.

Said coach Serame Letsoaka: "My team played very well and according to instructions. Though we have already qualified, we will still go for broke in the return match in Zimbabwe.''

"Fatigue affected my boys on the day,'' said Rodwell Bhlakama, the Zimbawe coach.
