Hungry Lions Are ABC Motsepe Champions
Hungry Lions are the 2020/20201 National ABC Motsepe Champions after winning Saturday’s final via a penalty shootout against Platinum City Rovers.
The match had ended goalless, and the Northern Cape side won the shootout 5-4.
Both teams have also been promoted to the GladAfrica Championship, as they two teams rose above the other seven regional champions at this past week’s ABC Motsepe playoffs tournament.
It was a closely fought match, as we have seen throughout the week at the playoffs, and at halftime it was a goalless affair between the Northern Cape and North West teams.
There were few chances for both teams during the game, with much of the action taking place in the middle of the pitch, and just like in both semi-finals it was a penalty shootout that decide the victor.
The shootout went to sudden death, and in the end Lions were 5-4 winners.
The winners walk away with R800,000 prize money, while R200,000 goes to development in their region. The runners-up receive half of that.
