Gauteng will face Santos in the final of the 2016 SAFA/Burger King u19 Men’s Championship on Sunday, 18 December at Phillipi Stadium in Cape Town.

Kickoff is at 15h00 and the match will be broadcast live on SABC 1.

The 3rd/4th place will be a contest between losing semi-finalists Mpumalanga and Cape Town City, which will take place at the same venue and on the same day at 11h15.

Entry into the stadium in free.

The Burger King-sponsored tournament started on Tuesday, 12 December with 12 teams battling it out for the title.

Santos booked their place with a hard-fought 4-2 win on penalties over neighbours Cape Town City. Both sides couldn’t find the back of the net in regulation time.

With nerves at high level, the two teams failed to score their opening kicks – Mikhail Solomons (Santos) and captain Duncan Adonis (City) the culprits.

Santos were able to score the three kicks that followed while City only managed to bang in two before Safwan Hendricks missed.

It was then left to Kieraan Diedericks to score the winning goal and take Santos to the final – and he did not disappoint.

In the other semi-final, Gauteng had no such problems as they beat a stubborn Mpumalanga 3-1.

Molahlehi Khunyedi put Gauteng in the lead in the 18th minute but Uyanda Mbaziza restored parity five minutes after the break.

Bradley Gross and Gape Moralo struck in the 53rd and 67th minutes to confirm victory for Gauteng.

Adoni is still the top goal scorer with five goals, but he will have to fend off the challenge of Mbaziza who is just one goal adrift.
