Four minutes later Gamildien made it 2-0 with a shot from the edge of the penalty area from a cross by Luyanda Hlongwa.

The Clever Boys began the second half by immediately clawing a goal back less than a minute after the interval. A Langwe corner found Bhongolwethu Jayiya as he headed home to make the score 2-1.
