Chiefs lift trophy, Moroka Swallows survives relegation
by TINTSWALO BALOYI
PORT ELIZABETH, (CAJ News) – KAIZER Chiefs have been crowned the 2014 / 2015 Absa premiership champions following their emphatic 2-0 victory over Chippa United in a match played at Nelson Mandela Bay in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
Two goals from Mandla Masngo and Zimbabwean international midfielder Willard Katsande were enough to see the log pacesetters clinch the title in this exciting encounter.
Amakhosi, as Kaizer Chiefs are affectionately called won the championship three games before the curtains could come down, but the sponsors only waited for the last match of the season in order to honour them.
On the other hand, AmaZulu Football Club have kissed goodbye to the Absa premiership league following a 2-1 defeat in the hands of Maritzburg United in a KwaZulu Natal derby at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
Moroka Swallows, who many thought would kick the bucket survived the relegation by a whisker when veteran midfielder-cum-striker Siyabonga Nomvete scored the only goal of the day against Bloemfontein Celtic at Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto to throw the Soweto giant some lifeline.
