Sundowns star grabs the match-ball for the first time this season.

If scoring more than 15 goals was not enough this season, Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile showed that he is still on the rise as he scored his first hattrick of the season and went home with the match-ball. The hattrick took his league tally for the season to 18 goals. It was not only the first hattrick for Shalulile, but it was the first hattrick of the current PSL season by any player.

It was a top versus bottom affair when Mamelodi Sundowns returned to league action against Swallows FC and the results came out exactly how the match was weighed on paper.

The DSTV Premiership log leaders sunk Swallows FC by 4 goals to 2 with Peter Shalulile scoring the 3 for Sundowns and Bradley Ralani getting his first league goal of the season. Shalulile waz on hot form in the game as by the opening 15 minutes of the game, he had already scored a brace.

Swallows quickly pulled one back to reduce the deficit, but it was Ralani who restored the two-goal lead before half-time makin it 3-1. Right on the closing stages of the game, it seemed like game on when substitute Gamaldien pulled another one back for Swallows to make it 3-2. But Shalulile dropped them off their high horse as he quickly went on to scored his 3rd goal of the game, which earned him the match-ball as it finished 4-2 on Wednesday evening.
