Ajax Succesfully defend Metropolitan Cup 28/03/05
Ajax Cape Town proved again that they are one of the hottest junior sides in the country after they succesfully defended their Metropolitan Cup title at the Erica Park sports complex in Belhar on Monday afternoon.

The young Urban Warriors, who showed their class throughout the tournament, won after they beat the 2003 champions, Tuks, on penalties.

The match, which kept the massive crowd, estimated to be in the region of 15 000, enthralled throughout, had ended 0-0 after regulation time, with both teams missing several chances to clinch the game. Ajax then went on to win the penalty shootout by four goals to three.

Earlier in the day Moroka Swallows made sure they didn't go home empty handed after they ebat Northwood Rangers to win the Mid section final (DULLAH OMAR MEMORIAL TROPHY), while Santos won the Plate final, thrashing Cultural Roots 6-1.

The tournament, which showacased some of the best young talent in South Africa, was a huge success, catering also for ladies soccer, while there was a match for street children, as well as several demonstattions, such as a life-skils demonstration and a goal keeping course.

The spectators turned up in large numbers every day and there was a relaxed family atmosphere throughout the six days - credit must certainly go to the organisers for succesfully hosting a tournament of this magnitude.
