  • Babina Noko went past Stellenbosch

WHAT HAPPENED: Sekhukhune opened the scoring after 12 minutes thanks to Sibusiso Vilakazi who capitalized on Pirates' poor defending.

CONTROVERSIAL PENALTY: In the stroke of halftime Victor Letsoalo went down in his own area after what he felt was a foul from a Bucs player.

The referee ignored him; and Thembinkosi Lorch forced Letsoalo - who was still down in the danger zone, to handle the ball.

The official pointed to the spot amid protests from Babina Noko players. Tapelo Xoki sent the keeper the wrong way to level matters.

Pirates managed to win it after Monnapule Saleng picked Terrence Dzvukamanja's run in the danger zone, and the forward didn't disappoint as he netted to seal Pirates' 2-1 win.

Pirates have now won the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup this season. They will also play in the Caf Champions League in the 2023/24 campaign.
