THE Vodacom Premier League returned from the international break with a bang as defending Premier League champions Bantu handed Manonyane a 6-0 thumping while LCS halted Matlama winning streak.

A Matšo Matebele were ruthless as they hosted Manonyane in Maputsoe, Leribe to bounce back from a poor run of results with a big win.

Recently capped Likuena midfielder, Tšepang Sefali along with veteran Hlompho Kalake were outstanding for Bantu on the day and with each netting a brace.

Tšoanelo Koetle, Lazola Jokojokwana also added their names to the scoresheet.

The big victory over Manonyane also helped the Mafeteng-based outfit reclaim their second position in the league standings after both Lioli and LCS dropped points in the Saturday matches.

League leaders, Matlama were held to a one-all draw by LCS to halt their impressive run, which has seen them unbeaten in their last 12 matches.

Tse Putsoa remain at the summit of the Vodacom Premier League with 63 points from their 25 matches played so far and a healthy 14-point advantage over second-placed Bantu.

Masheshena grabbed the lead in the first half through Keketso Snyders, but Tse Putsoa were able to comeback and salvage a one-all draw thanks to a goal scored by Lerotholi Zwane straight from the corner kick in the second half.

Elsewhere, Mabut Potloane scored a brace as Linare ended their poor run of results, which recently led to the club parting ways with Motebang Makhetha after just four games in charge and recalling Teboho Moloi into the hotseat.

 The 2-1 victory over Tse Nala revived Linare top 8 ambitions as they now occupy 8th spot in the standings with 38 points after 26 games.

Monyatheli Ntobo scored the only goal of the match as LMPS clinched a 1-0 victory over struggling Liphakoe to boost their chances of finishing the campaign among the top eight teams in the league.

Katleho Makateng, who was the hero for Likuena a fought night ago scoring a brace in the 3-1 victory over Seychelles, maintained his goal scoring form in the league with his 10th goal of the campaign as LDF registered a 2-1 victory over bottom of the table Sefothafotha.

Makateng is rivalling the likes of Jane Thabantšo and Makara Ntaitsane in the race for the Vodacom Premier League’s golden boot award.

There was also a big victory for Swallows as they maintained their revival under Teele Ntšonyana with a 2-0 win over CCX while Likhopo suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Lifofane.

The victory over CCX helped Swallows leapfrog Likhopo in the relegation dogfight and the Halemakale Mahlaha-coached side now find itself second from bottom in the Vodacom Premier League table.
