The sixteen teams came with the eye on  the prize, an opportunity to go through to the national Final being held at the Rand Show from Wednesday 4 – Saturday 7 April 2018.

Milanos were the victorious team after battling it out with other teams. The games ended at 16:30 after the teams had to go into Penalty shootout. Milanos beat Royal Lakes 2- 0 after penalties and confirmed their spot in the final.
