Free State Stars beat Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium, with goals from Edward Mnqele and Katlego Mashego handing them a 2-0 win.
The away side had the opening opportunity on seven minutes when Michael Morton fouled Daniel Agbagwu to give Stars a free-kick, but it failed to trouble the goalkeeper,
On 19 minutes Stars broke out in attack again which saw Mashego send in a cross for Mnqele, who struck a right-footed effort into the top right corner from 18 yards out.
The game went into a lull for most of the second half until substitute Boitumelo Sekgobela tested Shu-Aib Walters with a 20-yard drive.
And it was Mashego that silenced the home crowd as the striker struck a low right-footed ball into the bottom of the goal from 12 yards out, with Noah Chivuta providing the assist.
