Indeed pirates seem to have gained it's power. This is a very unusual win because it has been a long time without impressive results for orlando pirates. Hoping that this will be the beggining of great things for orlando pirates.

Midfielder Ben Motshwari selected the Buccaneers line-up from the goalless draw against Golden Arrows, with Terrence Dzvukamanja beginning too as Stellies stayed unaltered.

After an exuberant beginning, Pirates snatched the lead on 20 minutes after a knockdown from the extreme left nearby by Deon Hotto delivered a plain Collins Makgaka to execute a short proximity finish. 

The Buccaneers multiplied their lead inside brief when Hotto this time ransacked Alan Robertson from ownership to continue and beat goalkeeper Sage Stephens with a low strike. 

Stellenbosch searched for a moment reaction and almost thought that it is through an amazing free-kick from Junior Mendieta, however the reflexes from Siyabonga Mpontshane coordinated with the strike.

Privateers entered the second half in mean mind-set and expanded their lead through a harsh completion from Hotto following cunning mix play by Kwame Peprah and Makgaka. 

With more than ten minutes in the restart, the Buccaneers chose to welcome on new faces in Kwanda Mngonyama in the spot of Bandile Shandu. 

The Maroons and Whites started to declare tension on the Sea Robbers with balls in and around the space, yet the Soweto monsters figured out how to clear. 

Privateers however were denied a fourth as of now when Olisa Ndah completed a free ball at the close to post from a corner-kick, yet it was precluded following a rashness. 

Steve Barker's men terrified the Buccaneers late on with a progression of chances from Mendieta that calculated off the woodwork late on, yet the Soweto monsters arose successful eventually. Hoping that good things won't stop happening for orlandopirates.
