Polokwane City registered their first win of the campaign, after defeating Highlands Park 3-2 in a thrilling encounter on Saturday afternoon.
 
 
Rise and Shine broke the deadlock after just six minutes as Thobani Mncwango netted his second of the season with a close-range finish.

Highlands wasted no time in leveling matters as Charlton Mashumba bagged his second of the season by turning home Jose Garcia's cross.
 
Allan Freese opted for a change 10 minutes into the second half, as Thanduyise Khuboni replaced Sandile Khwela.
 
Polokwane pushed for a third goal and were rewarded in the 73rd minute thanks to a strike from Jabu Maluleke. His first goal of the season.
 
The newly promoted outfit pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages, but were unable to carve out a clear-cut opening, as Polokwane held on for the three points.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Polokwane City: Chigova, Semenya, Hlongwane, Tema, Mbonani, Seabi, Ramagalela, Jembula, Mncwango, Tlolane, Maluleke.
