Dikwena got off to the perfect start in the third minute, as Eleazar Rodgers' flick-on managed to make its way into the back of the net.

Allan Freese's extended their lead just before the halftime break, after they were awarded a penalty, which Vincent Khumalo slotted away.
 
Bryce Moon came close to getting his name on the score-sheet in the 63rd minute but his low-driven effort crashed against the upright.
 
The lead was eventually increased three minutes later, as Rodgers rose highest to head home Moon's delightful cross.
 
Vuyo Mere should have added a fourth in the closing stages of the game, but the Dikwena skipper blasted over from close range with the goal at his mercy.
