By Craig Silver, November 6, 2008

A hat-trick from Faithfold's Ben Lewis helped the former cup winners come from a goal down to beat Premier Division rivals Bafana Bafana in the first round of the JC Cyril Anekstein Cup.

Paul Lenchner and Matty Kleinman also scored for the Greens in a tie in which Bafana's Adam Lawrence had twice equalised for the visitors.

A thrilling contest started with both sets of players struggling to impose themselves on the game as footing on a slippery surface proved tricky.
