Cape Town - Santos have survived some anxious first half moments before overcoming Gamalakhe United 2-1 in a Nedbank Cup Last 32 game played at the Athlone Stadium on Wednesday night, Despite their status as underdogs from the third tier, Gamalakhe made an excellent start to the game.

It was however the visiting team from Port Shepstone who were to take the lead on 22 minutes, a brilliant move involving a string of passes ending with Sakhile Kubheka turning the ball into an empty net after Mkhize's square ball had cut out Touray.
