Goals by Vuyani Ntanga and Gabadinho Mhango gave Phunya Sele Sele the victory.

The Bloemfontein outfit reached the final after beating Bidvest Wits 1-0 in the first semifinal.

Usuthu booked their place by beating Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 in an entertaining clash. It was evident that the final was the second match of the day for both teams.

The match started off sluggish, only coming to life in the dying minutes of the game. The tournament gave the four teams good practice before the start of the 2014/15 season that kicks off on the second weekend of August.
