Silver Stars scored a morale boosting 2-0 win over the more fancied SuperSport United in their Coca Cola Cup clash played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polekwane on Sunday afternoon.
Although Owen da Gama's rookies have been playing some attractive soccer this season, they have yet to register a win in the Castle Premiership, and so this win will serve to boost the team's confidence as well as giving them the chance of earning a share of the massive prize money at stake.
Stars were highly impressive on the day and dominated most areas of the pitch against their more illustrious opponents and in fact could have won by a larger score-line.
Jabulani Nkosi opened the scoring for the home team in the ninth minute.
SuperSport tried to fight back and thought they had equalised in the 15th minute through Thando Mngomeni, but his effort was ruled offside.
Dingaan Masanabo then doubled the home side's lead in 49th minute, and they should have gone 3-0 up in the 76th minute when they were awarded a penalty after Themba Mnguni fouled Edward Williams, but Surprise Moriri saw his effort saved by keeper Calvin Marlin.
