With two minutes left before the break, Riaan Hanamub put the ball into his own net after some great work by Fortune Makaringe on the wing, 2-0.

Ben Motshwari sealed all three points for the visitors with two minutes left on the clock making it 3-0. The midfielder rolled the ball into the bottom corner after being played through by Gabadihno Mhango.
