Cape Town - Cape Town City beat SuperSport United 2-1 in the final of the Telkom Knockout Cup at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday, securing a first ever trophy in South African football. 

Aubrey Ngoma and Judas Moseamedi found he back of the net for City, who sealed a first major title as a club just four months after John Comitis purchased Mpumalanga Black Aces' PSL status.  

Thuso Phala missed an early chance for Matsatsantsa as they went in search of the lead. The Bafana Bafana winger was unable to connect a pin-point cross with only Shu-Aib Walters to beat in the ninth minute as the hero of the 2014 final was left to rue his miss minutes later. 

Ngoma, who has been in outstanding form this season, opened the scoring four minutes later as he powered home a rasping shot from the edge of the area.  

The former Ajax Cape Town and AmaTuks attackers' goal was the difference between the two sides at the break.  

Kingston Nkhatha leveled matters in the 71st minute after Jeremy Brockie had been pulled off on the hour mark - the New Zealander, who had returned from injury to take his place in the starting eleven, having failed to have the desired effect.  

SuperSport's celebrations, though, were short-lived as Moseamedi restored City's lead two minutes later. Ngoma was the provider once more, as the burly forward got down low to head the ball past an outstretched Reyaad Pieterse.  

Matsatsantsa piled on the pressure in the closing stages of the encounter with Thamsanqa Mkhize making an incredible last ditch block to deny Thabo Mnyamane from point-black range in the 83rd minute.  

Clayton Daniels was then denied by Walters, as City held on for an historic win.
