Summary of the final
This was history after all, the completion of the first domestic cup, and yet something else felt more significant: that even a Kit Kat Super Cup final with all its supposed magical imponderables could fall so utterly under the dominance of Keenan Pillay's team.
For the first 35 minutes, iqraam Dawood"s team stayed in the classic edge-of-the-area as they took the lead early in the through Yaaseen Habib's goal. Los Blancos were on top form in the first 35 minutes as they managed to go ahead but not for long as Paris Saint-Germain turned up the heat as Robyn swartz managed to inspire the comeback as the first half ended 3 - 3
Los Blancos seemed to be the stronger side in the first half but could not keep up with the momentum and pace of Paris Saint-Germain in the second half. Los Blancos barely held possession of the ball as Paris Saint-Germain passing was phenomenal. Perhaps the idea of this Paris Saint-Germain team, a side so
hard to disrupt, has loomed too large the
minds of their opponents this season that the notion of beating them is simply
overwhelming. Robyn Swartz got his hands on the match ball he managed to score a hat-trick while Bradley Dikgole begged a brace. The final score was 7 - 5
