Bloemfontein - Drama has reigned at the soaked Charles Mopeli Stadium on Sunday afternoon as Kaizer Chiefs squeezed into the semi-finals of the Telkom Knockout courtesy of a 4-2 win in a penalty shoot-out.

Ironically, in the circumstances, Stars had been poised to march into the final four of the competition via the penalty issue after the 70th minute penalty by Chiefs' Bernard Parker had been saved by Daniel Agyei - only for the Free State team to be awarded a penalty themselves five minutes later for Togolese international Sadat Ouro-Akoriko to open the score.

He failed to save any of the four penalties taken by Chiefs, but this was not the deciding factor, with the game ultimately decided by the poor spot-kicks of his teammates.
