Wits oust Orlando Pirates out of Ke Yona

Orlando Pirates is probably still recovering from a nice whooping by Wits this past weekend. The Soweto giants were ousted out of the Nedbank Cup.

After a gruelling match against Wits, the Buccanneers lost 3-2 on penalties to Bidvest Wits at the Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

The thriller went down to the wire, ending 3-3 after extra time.

Pirates came back from a two goal lead in regulation time to send the game into extra time.

Bienvenu Eva Nga and Deon Hotto gave Wits the 2-0 lead before Happy Jele and Thembinkosi Lorch pulled Bucs back.

Zakes Lepasa though he had won it for Bucs in extra time but Gift Motupa sent the match to penalties.

Hard luck to the Bucs!
