Result: FS Stars 3-0 Chippa
 
Date: 12 September 2015
 
Venue: Goble Park
 
Free State Stars claimed their first Absa Premiership win of the season as they beat Chippa United 3-0 on Saturday.
 
The Chilli Boys tried their luck early in the game as Rhulani Manzini unleashed a shot at goal in the 20th minute, but it went straight at Daouda Diakite who made the simple save.
 
However, it was Free State who opened the scoring in the 34th minute when Andrea Fileccia hammered home a sensational volley to beat Ayanda Masiko.
 
Three minutes into the second half Fileccia was full of confidence following his goal and backed himself to bag a second but the Belgian's shot went wide of the target.
 
Ea Lla Koto had a good chance to double their lead just past the hour mark when Danny Venter's corner kick picked out Sankara, but his headed effort went wide of goal.
 
In the 77th minute the hosts found their second goal thanks to Venter who provided a superb curling strike that nestled in the back of the Chippa goal to secure all three points for Stars.
 
The victory was capped off in the last four minutes as Fileccia completed his brace to seal a 3-0 win.
 
Here's how the teams lined up:
 
FS Stars: Diakite, Masehe, Mashego, Shabalala, Sankara, Tlhone, Ngasa, Somaeb, Fileccia, Obada, Venter.
 
Chippa: Masiko, Okwuosa, Thopola, Macheka, Chipeta, Sali, Molangoane, Mthiyane, Mayambela, Manzini, Cloete
