Paulus Shipanga said this after his side Blue Waters defeated Western Spurs 6-4 in penalties at the Jan Wilken Stadium in Mariental after a full-time goalless draw.

Shipanga said that when you play cup games, you don’t have much of a choice as to how to play. “You have to score goals and defend your lead; this is the strategy we are implementing.”

His side is through to the last eight and he added that they are going all out and will put the best players on the field and hope that there are no injuries.

Rest of the results

In the other matches played on Saturday, Khuse Football Club (FC) beat Nossob FC, 4-2, at the Oscar Norich stadium in Tsumeb, with a hattrick from Titus Abraham and a solo goal by Abraham Hatutale.

Charles Geingob and Sergio Gariseb scored for Nossob.

Mighty Gunners won 6-2 against New Poison. Gunners got their goals through a hattrick by Asser Hara-Ramseb while veterans Pineas Jakob and Vernon Klaazen both scored one goal each to lead 5-2 at halftime.

Andrias Mushongo and George Mbambangandu were on target for Poison before Fares Haidula made it 6-2 for Gunners.

Tigers made it academic as they brushed aside Zambezi qualifiers Super 11 with a comprehensive 3-0 win at Tsumeb. Brave Warriors midfielder Absalom Iimbondi, Johannes Jackson and Chris Katjiukua, from the spot, secured the victory for Ingweinyama.

Another NPFL outfit, Young African, alsp advanced courtesy of a 5-4 penalty shootout victory over Ohangwena Nampol following a goalless draw.

Two hattricks led the goals with Black Africa bowing out of the competition at the hands of Young Brazilians at Mariental. The boys from Karasburg got the better of BA, winning the match 4-0 to advance to the last eight.

Francois Vries netted a brace, while Esterhuizen Wayne and Quinton Van Staden scored a goal each.

Before going to print, football action was scheduled at the Unam main campus stadium in Windhoek.

DTS Hopsol were scheduled to face Citizens at 14:00 with Tura Magic to go up against Civics at 16:00.

The quarter-finals will take place on the weekend of 25 and 26 September.
