Bucs March On To MTN8 Semis Last Night

Orlando Pirates began the new season on a high with an MTN 8 quarterfinal win over Cape Town City at Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

The Soweto Giants’ return to the home of South African football proved to be a happy outing for the hosts, who marked it with a win after falling on the first hurdle of their previous attempt in the competition.

It was a new-look Buccaneers outfit taking to the field on the day, with no less than four starters making their debuts in the famous black and white.

The deadlock was broken through a timely contribution from Bucs debutants, as Wayde Jooste – from the right flank – found Terrence Dzvukamanja’s leaping header, with the Zimbabwean international directing the ball into the net for his first goal in Pirates colours.
