Platinum Stars beat SuperSport United 3-0 to finish second in the League standings

Posted: 18 May 2013 Time: 17:01

Platinum Stars thumped SuperSport United 3-0 at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Saturday to make sure they finished second in the Premiership.

It was a great way to finish the season for Dikwena, who profited from goals from Tintswalo Tshabalala, Mogakolodi Ngele and Thuso Phala

Dikwena dominated the game from start to finish, and might have had more goals to show for their efforts.

They had the lead just after the half-hour mark when Tshabalala finished from close-range from a Solomon Mathe pass.

Scorer turned provider for the second when Tshabalala’s cross from the right found Ngele just outside the area and the Botswana international blasted home his 10th goal of the season.

Thabani Mthembu tried an audacious over-head kick that went over the bar, but did make his presence felt in Stars’ third. His cross from the right was only parried by Ronwen Williams into the path of Phala, who scored against his future employers.

The pace of the game dropped in the second period, Stars happy to defend what they had and SuperSport resigned to their fate in the match.

It had an end of season feel to it as the celebration in the stands from the Dikwena supporters started in earnest as the team capped what has been an extraordinary season for them in fine style.

What a season Platinum Stars gave us. I can only wish they give us more of what they gave this season. They play good attractive football that must be commanded especially since they have south african born coach. Well done boys, u almost caused an upset for us but we are very happy with challenge you gave us. I salute Cavin Johnson for a good manager he is. Wishing all the best for next season, it was gonna be nice if P.Stars won the nedbank to really put cherry on their good season plus their kit goes well with the colours of nedbank.

Congratulations on your victory today and on winning the Q4

Well down to Stars. But they will be under pressure next year, as teams know how they play now, plus they have lost Thuso Phala. They will struggle to make the top eight next year together with Pirates.
