Stellies Goes Top As Sifama Stuns Sundowns

Stellenbosch FC are top of the DStv Diski Challenge after defeating Orlando Pirates while Mamelodi Sundowns dropped to second place after a narrow 1-0 loss against Sekhukhune United.

Stellies earlier defeated Pirates by 1-0 courtesy of Langelihle Phili. The Cape Winelands side are sitting one point ahead of Sundowns with four matches to go. Stellies continued with their good run, with a seventh wins in eight matches.

Former Kaizer Chiefs forward Keletso Sifama scored the only goal in the match between Babina Noko and Sundowns which resulted in Downs being dethroned from the crown. This is Sundown’s second defeat in the last three matches.

Pirates’ title hopes are slowly shutting down, especially after the defeat this morning. Bucs only won one match in the last five matches and lost three which kept their title hopes at risk.

Sunday Results:

Orlando Pirates 0-1 Stellenbosch FC
Sekhukhune United 1-0 Mamelodi Sundowns
Cape Town Spurs 4-0 Chippa United
Royal AM 2-2 TS Galaxy
SuperSport United 1-0 Moroka Swallows
AmaZulu FC 1-0 Richards Bay
