Kurt Lentjies struck twice as Maritzburg United beat Black Leopards 3-1 in a Nedbank Cup last-32 tie on Wednesday night.
Lentjies opened the scoring 17 minutes in with a fine finish from the edge of the box, but Roggert Nyundu hit back soon after to make it 1-1 at the break at Harry Gwala Stadium.
Bandile Shandu then nudged the Team of Choice ahead in the 70th minute before man of the match Lentjies sealed the result from the spot with seven minutes to go.
The experienced playmaker slotted the penalty after Evans Rusike was fouled in the box by Thivhavhudzi Ndou, who was given his marching orders for the challenge.
