In-form attacker Keletso Makgalwa fired Upington City to an impressive win in the Motsepe Foundation Championship after defeating JDR Stars 3-1 on Saturday at Mxolisi Dicky Jacobs Stadium.
The Limpopo-born star won a penalty for Upington which was converted by Bonginkosi Makume. He went on to net the last goal that gave the Northern Cape-based outfit maximum points.
Keletso Makgalwa has featured in seven games for Upington City and scored two goals in the second tier.
The Limpopo-born star joined Upington in October 2023 on a free transfer after parting ways with Mamelodi Sundowns. His stint with Upington offers him a new lease of life, which he has taken in his stride.
Elsewhere, Orbit College dropped points after playing to a 1-1 draw against Magesi FC at Olympia Park Stadium on Saturday.
The Mswenko Boys as they are affectionately known remain winless in their last two games in the league after losing 6-1 to Casric Stars last weekend.
Despite drawing against Magesi, Orbit College sits top of the Motsepe Foundation table with 26 points after 15 games.
Meanwhile, Maritzburg United and Marumo Gallants played to an entertaining 3-3 draw at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday.
