MASERU – Bantu made history yesterday when they dethroned defending Alliance Winter Challenge champions Lioli by beating them 1 - 0 becoming the only invited team to win the competition.

The Alliance Winter Challenge is contested by three premier league teams sponsored by Alliance Insurance Company. The three include Matlama, Lioli and LCS along with a fourth invitee. The Mafeteng-based outfit pocketed the M50 000 prize money and walked away with both the trophy and gold medals. Their solitary goal was scored by Lits'epe Marabe in the second half of the game after both teams were tied to a goalless draw in the first half.
