Lioli edged Likila United 2-1 at PTC Ground on Sunday to maintain their position at the summit of the 14-team Vodacom Premier League table.

Jerry Kamele and Tšepo Lekhooana scored the goals which handed Tse Nala maximum points after the rookies had gone ahead early in the match through Sello Koetle.

The Teyateyaneng-based giants had struggled with their game prior to the weekend match, and now have a four-point advantage over second-placed Bantu. A Matšo Matebele dropped points for the first time in 2015 after being held 1-1 by LCS on Saturday.

Thabo Seakhoa put Masheshena ahead from the penalty spot early in the second half, before Litšepe Marabe scored a scorcher to level matters for Bantu.

In the weekend’s surprise result, struggling LMPS stunned Matlama 1-0 at Pitso Ground on Saturday, courtesy of former national team striker, Teboho Sehloho.

This was the police side’s third win of the 2014/15 football season, but they still remain second-from-bottom on the table.

In St Monica’s, Linare suffered their 10th loss of the season after going down 2-0 to Nyenye Rovers on Saturday.

The win boosted the Tycoons’ chances of avoiding relegation, while compounding Linare’s woes which appear to be mounting with each passing week.

Also on Saturday, Tšeliso Phera and Mojela Letsie were on target for LDF at Ratjomose Ground, as the army side beat Kick4Life 2-0. The win took LDF level with second-placed Bantu on 37 points.

On Sunday, there was also a win for Likhopo who beat Mphatlalatsane 2-0 away in St Monica’s.

Thabo Mongali and Chaka Maile scored Likhopo’s priceless goals, which moved the Red Army to seventh position on the table.
