Four of the seven remaining Namibia Premier Football League (NPFL) clubs booked their places in the semi-final, setting up an all premier league last four encounter in the MTC Namibia Football Association (NFA) Cup.

PSTBET Civics reached the semi-final of the competition after trouncing Khuse FC 3-0.

“I am very happy with the result because the team has been playing really well and that is what we needed going into the game,” coach Jerry Zimmer said.

“Civics is now showing our old spark and that is what we are about as a club.

“We are now in the semi-final and we can only hope to go all the way and claim the competition.

“We will, however, not get ahead of ourselves, but it is important that we maintain our focus going into our next game.”

Strong performance

Mighty Gunners FC also delivered a strong performance which saw them beating Tigers FC 2-1 to reach the semis.

Meanwhile, Young Brazilians FC fought hard to come from two goals down and force their match against Blue Waters to penalties.

The team from Karasburg, however, failed to capitalise on their open play heroics, resulting in Blue Waters beating them by 5-3 in penalties.

“Yes, we are indeed very disappointed with the result because we played very well to force this game into penalties.

“The players displayed courage and character even though we did not make it to the semi-final,” Young Brazilians coach Tola Julius said.

“It would have been something special for the boys from Karasburg, but it was just not our day,” he added.

Big win

Young African advanced to the semi-final after beating Citizens FC 2-0.

Tigers FC lost 2-1 to Mighty Gunners in the other semi-final.

“It was a big win for us because our ultimate goal is to reach the final and we are a step closer to that.

“I am happy with our performance so far, but we are going to take everything step by step,” Mighty Gunners coach Gerhardt Hengari said.
