STRUGGLING premier league giants Linare on Sunday walloped bottom-of-the-table Butha-Buthe Warriors 6-1 in a match played at Maputsoe DIFA Ground.

The match was only the second win for 11th-positioned Linare with their first triumph a 5-1 trumping of third-from-bottom Rovers.

Nzenze Nkulu bagged a brace with Themba Mzamane, Molefi Mosebo, Lebenya Leboela and Rethabile Selonyana completing the rout of the Butha-Buthe-based side.

Elsewhere on Sunday, the match between LDF and Bantu was cancelled before it could end after a bitter brawl between the teams’ players.

A Matšo Matebele were at that stage enjoying a 2-0 lead courtesy of a penalty and a stunning free-kick scored by Hlompho Kalake.

The match between Matlama and Sundawana as well as Likhopo and Sky Battalion did not take place as Tse Putsoa and the Red Army had their players on national duty with the national under-20 side.

On Saturday, Lioli proved their mettle with a 4-1 hammering of log leaders Kick4Life.

Impressive Tšepo Seturumane scored a brace with Tšepo Lekhooana and Tumelo Khutlang each scoring once.

Nkoto Masoabi scored the consolation goal for Kick4Life against his former side.
