Diva United also advanced to the next stage of the competition after edging Kangiringiri FC 3-2.

Triple A FC failed to qualify to the next round of the competition after losing 2-3 to Young Heroes FC.

The tournament will continue with the Pool B elimination matches this weekend.

Shitemo United FC are set to battle Kagcuva FC at 08:00 in the first match on 15 June.

Makandu FC and Shitemo Blue Eagles FC will then clash in the second match of the day at 10:00, followed by Power Stars FC against John Mbambi FC at 12:00.

Mokorabi Tiger FC and Koro FC will bring the curtain down on the elimination rounds at 14:00.

The champions of the competition will walk away with N$10 000, while the runners-up take home N$6 000. The third-place finishers will get N$4 000 for their efforts, while the fourth-place side will be compensated with N$2 500.

Last year's winners Rucara Brave Fighters walked away with a floating trophy, 30 gold medals and N$10 000.

Makandu Young Stars received 30 silver medals and N$6 000, while Gumma Golden City, who have won the tournament twice since its inception in 2016, finished third and walked away with 30 bronze medals and N$4 000.

Power Stars finished fourth and were awarded N$2 500. All the quarterfinal losers received consolation prizes of N$1 000, while the round of 16 losers received N$700 each. Recognised by the sports ministry and the Namibia Football Association (NFA), under the Kavango East Region second division, the cup is aimed at developing sport at a rural level.

The PKC is played in the Ndonga-Linena and Ndiyona constituencies, with over 30 teams competing against each other annually.
