The round of 32 in the annual Bidvest Namibia Cup produced a few shock results with some of the big guns falling by the wayside.
All matches in the Bidvest Namibia Cup were preceded by a moment of silence in memory of the late Minister of Education Dr Abraham Iyambo, who was laid to rest in Windhoek on Saturday.
The biggest upset in the weekend's action was the early elimination of two time winners Civics FC. The mighty Civilians were knocked out of the cup by minnows United Stars (7-6) in a dreaded penalty shootout after a goalless stalemate in Tsumeb on Saturday.
Another premiership outfit casualty came in the form of Tura Magic, who suffered an early exit after a 3-1 rout by Hotspurs at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek on Saturday.
The defeat marked Woody Jacobs' first game in charge of the MTC Premiership League rookies following his unceremonious departure from Ramblers less than a week ago.
Jacobs' former team Ramblers easily cruised through to the next round with a 7-1 hammering of lower division opponents Pubs FC in the opening match in Tsumeb, yesterday.
Newly promoted Northern Stream Division One team, African Lions, recorded the biggest win in the round of 32 when the Otjiwarongo outfit drowned a hapless River United FC by 13 unanswered goals. The latter hails from the country's 3rd tier league in the Omaheke Region.
