2017-11-29 06:01

SWARTKOPSVALLEY United Brothers (SUBS) and Sibanye FC kept the Nelson Mandela Bay flag flying high when both accumulated their three maximum league points in their respective matches at the weekend.

SUBS defeated City Lads 2-1 in front of their home supporters at Motherwell NU 2 Stadium. The three league points seemed to have lifted the spirits of the SUBS players who had a shaky start to the league season.

Sibanye FC, the new kids on the block, also defeated FC Buffalo 2-1 at Gelvandale Stadium.

Sibanye FC have proven to be a good side that keeps the hopes of the supporters alive by maintaining their status in the league.

Unfortunately, Lion City continued with their dismal performance after they suffered a 2-0 defeat to Bizana Pondo Chiefs in Mbhizana.

Highbury FC were handed a huge 4-0 loss by Spears FC, while PE Stars FC were hammered in an away 3-0 defeat by Tornado FC in East London.
