Top-flight Maritzburg United fought back to overcame fourth-tier Tembu Royals 3-1 Friday in a South African FA Cup last-16 match.
Joseph Mofokeng raised hopes of a shock result with a first-half goal in eastern Cape town Mthatha, but Mario Booysen levelled after half-time and man-of-the-match Dillon Sheppard put Maritzburg ahead 13 minutes from time.
Zimbabwean Cuthbert Malajila added a third goal to earn unfashionable Maritzburg an April 13 home quarter-final against title-holders SuperSport United.
The South African FA Cup is the richest national football cup competition in Africa with the winners collecting $750,000 (580,000 euros) and a passport to the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup.
