HARMONY High School walloped Limpopo's Rampo 3-0 on the first day of the national finals of the Kay Motsepe Cup yesterday. This has made Harmony's coach, Pitso Mokoena, more confident that his charges will defend their title at the yearly event.
The tournament, which carries a first prize of R500000, is taking place at the University of Limpopo Turfloop campus's Oscar Mpetha stadium. It ends on Saturday.
Eighteen high schools from across the country are taking part in this stage of the tournament after winning provincial eliminators.
"We have prepared well for this tournament and the boys are eager to win the competition for the third time. Based on what we have observed during the opening matches it may not be a walk in the park for us," Mokoena said yesterday.
Harmony's next matches in the group stages will be against Khayamandi, Barolong and Thlwahalang.
The opening matches were enthralling yesterday, with 18 goals scored in nine games.
The Andries Sebola-coached Mokopane Academy, who were the favourites, succumbed 1-0 to Lamola. They will play Lukhanyo and the red-hot Langeberg in their last group matches today.
