Rise and Shine looked set to open the scoring early on at
the King Zwelithini Stadium, but Sakhile Ngubo saw his effort well saved by
goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni.
Katlego Babile then fired the Brazilians into the lead after
24 minutes, hammering home an unstoppable free-kick which flew past Kgothathso
Masha and into the back of the net.
The Tshwane giants were then 2-0 up just 10 minutes after
the restart as Tsepo Ntlaba's volleyed effort from close range put the reigning
PSL champions in cruise control.
Polokwane were unable to muster a single effort on target in
the second half, while their woeful afternoon was compounded in injury time
when Kgopane Maboko was shown a second yellow card and subsequent sending off.
Pitso Mosimane's men now head through to the semi-finals,
along with SuperSport United, University of Pretoria and Mpumalanga Black Aces.
