Mamelodi Sundowns continued their dominance in local football with another title to complete a treble of trophies this season.

The Brazilians edged a 10-man Marumo Gallants 2-1 in extra-time of the Nedbank Cup final at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng, North West on Saturday night.

Thapelo Morena scored late in the extended period to break a deadlock that was set by goals from Peter Shalulile and Sede Dion in regulation time.

The latest triumph means Sundowns closed off the season with all three PSL trophies worth a combined R30 million - the DStv Premiership (R15 million), the MTN8 (R8 million) and the Nedbank Cup (R7 million).

For Gallants and coach Dan “Dance” Malesela, consolation would be the team’s ticket to the CAF Confederation Cup nest season.

Here is a look at some of the highlights from the Nedbank Cup final in pictures:
