In addition, Witbank Spurs overpowered Milano United 2-1 in Wellington, thanks to Patrick Mubayiwa and Joshua Sauls, while FC Cape Town managed to hold Jomo Cosmos to a 1-1 drew.
 
AmaTuks and the People’s Team both recorded 2-1 home successes over Cape Town All Stars and Mbombela United respectively, while Amabhubhesi did well to produce the same score line on the road against newcomers, Magesi FC as Mhlengi Cele and Innocent Maela hit the back of the net.
 
Shaun Bartlett’s side with strikes from Thabo Moseki and Chemon Petersen illustrated who was best on the day at Tuks Stadium, where Bongani Fakude netted a consolation goals for Igugu Lekapa.
 
The same scenario played out in Parow as Santos went ahead through an early own goal before ex-Ajax Cape Town playmaker, Quien Paulse, grabbed a late winner on debut.
 
The match was characterised by some excellent work from Santos’ dedicated veteran captain, Tyren Arendse. He had a hand in both goals and generally showed his natural ability to outplay and outthink the opposition, for whom Siyabonga Madikane scored.
 
In the battle of the two Zimbabwean coaches, AmaZulu’s Joey Antipas got the better of his compatriot, Jairos Tapera, after a narrow 2-1 win over Black Leopards in Durban.
 
Siyabonga Nomvethe and Lungelo Dlamini were on target for Usuthu, while Lidoda Duvha’s goal came from Roggert Nyunda.
 
A brace from Andile Njokweni coupled with Lwazi Mncube’s early penalty gave Mthatha a good start but sent Sammy Troughton’s team to the bottom of the log.
 
Rookies, Real Kings managed to hold big-spending Royal Eagles to a 1-1 draw during a fiery KZN derby. Siphamandla Gumede (Kings) and Raymond Monama were the scorers.
