After a goalless first half, Brian Isaacs’ charges stepped up a gear and came out with guns smoking at the resumption, scoring three unanswered goals to all but put the result to bed. Free scoring striker Muna Katupose opened the floodgates before defenders Junior Gebhardt and Ndjemba Mundjamnima added a goal apiece to complete the riot.

Both Rundu Chiefs and Unites Stars failed to maximize home ground aantage – going down to visiting LHU Blue Waters and FNB Orlando Pirates respectively. Ballack Somaeb netted a brace to hand the much-improved seasiders a 2-0 win against relegation certainties Chiefs in the curtain raiser of a double header.

Ali Akan’s inspired Ghosts kept their title hopes alive with a hard fought 1-0 victory over the hosts with leading marksman Nicky Musambani rattling the opposition’s net in the 88th minute of the match. In midweek action, Civics and Tura Magic cancelled each other out in a 4-goal thriller.

Meanwhile, Namibia bowed out of the race to qualify for the 2015 CAF Youth Championship in Senegal, following a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Mozambique on Saturday.
