In the 41st minute Mpeta sent in a good shot from outside the box, but Khune was able to tip it over the goal.

A minute later Tintswalo Tshabalala tried a long range effort, but it took a deflection and went out for a corner.

Platinum Stars grabbed the lead in the 53rd minute when Semenya found the ball at his feet from the resulting corner, and rolled it in to the bottom left corner.
