MAHLE Old Grey retained top of the log spot in the PELFA Old Buck Gin League, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Fairview Rovers on their home turf.

It was a very close game and when half-time arrived, neither side had scored.

Fairview Rovers’ pressure eventually paid off when Sharief Mamoojee scored their winner 10 minutes into the second half.

Meanwhile, not only did Central Acemates beat Callies 2-0, but they also displaced Callies in second place on the log.

Acemates netted their first goal 15 minutes into the first half from a free kick by Malibongwe Sobikwa. Kwanele Mkolo then scored their second goal three minutes before half-time to ensure an upset win.

Kuyga Masters are slowly climbing up the log and are now lying fourth after a solid 2-0 victory over PE City at Victoria Park Sports Club. Andile Singaphi scored 18 minutes into the first half and Bandile Mata netted midway through the second half.

African Leopards gave Priory a 6-2 hiding on the Oval. Leopards went 2-0 up at half-time thanks to goals from Sipho Solomon and Tabo Simane.

The second half saw the floodgates open with Simane, Andile McClean, Luthando Yibe and Lukhanyo Dlula scoring for Leopards.

Oliver Kleinbooi and Rory Mortimer scored two consolation goals for Priory in the second half.

NMB Municipality got their second win of the season when they overcame St Albans 2-1.

Khonza Buzile scored for St Albans in the first half. However, Shawn Sokiya equlised for Municipality a few minutes later and Ndyebo Madolo sealed the game for Municipality nine minutes before the half-time whistle.
