Platinum Stars take Q2 prize money

Platinum Stars take Q2 Q-Innovation prize money

Posted: 16 December 2012 Time: 11:37 am

Platinum Stars have won the R1.5-million Q-Innovation prize money for this quarter, beating Orlando Pirates by one point.

Dikwena beat SuperSport United 1-0 yesterday, rendering Bucs’ 2-1 win over Maritzburg United on Friday insufficient to get them the cash – and bragging rights.

Platinum Stars won six and lost one of their seven Q2 fixtures, and top the table on 18 points, while Pirates’ five wins and two draws mean they ended up on 17.

Kaizer Chiefs and Free State Stars bring up the rear, with 14 points each.

Amakhosi lead the Premiership log as a whole, on 32 points, leading Pirates and Platinum Stars by one.

Four teams are still to play today: Golden Arrows host Ajax Cape Town and Moroka Swallows travel to Bloemfontein Celtic.

The third quarter of Q-Innovation starts on Tuesday, when Kaizer Chiefs host AmaZulu at Soccer City and Maritzburg United host University of Pretoria.

Q3 will have eight fixtures.

They really do fully deserve it, they've made the most of an average squad and credit has to go to Mr Johnson for rallying troops,yes now I do consider genuine title contenders. And its good for our league to have small teams rising to the occassion

Congratulations to Dikwena. At the end of the season, they too will have something to celebrate about. But the big one is going to the Buccaneers. I said it before, and I'll say it again, Pirates wants to win the league. Q-things are consolation to all who fall behind us
