Amakhosi were awarded the first penalty just before half-time, which was converted by Caleb. In the second half, they were rewarded two penalties in just a space of seven minutes.

Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana completed his hat-trick of penalties and was replaced by Nkosingiphile Ngcobo few minutes later.
