While Lamontville Golden Arrows’ dream of qualifying for next season’s Caf Confederation Cup was shattered after they drew 0-0 with Stellenbosch FC in a game that took place at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
Arrows had to win the game and hope that Orlando Pirates lose to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in order to finish third and qualify for the Confederation Cup, but they drew with Stellies.
At Dobsonville Stadium, Swallows FC showed character as they fought back to hold Baroka FC to a 1-1 draw in a tightly contested match.
Ananias Gebhardt handed Bakgaga Ba Mphahlele the lead in the first-half and it was his third goal of the league campaign having also netted against Orlando Pirates and TS Galaxy.
However, Givemore Khupe, who was introduced prior to the start of the second-half, rescued Swallows by scoring the equalising goal after the restart.
Meanwhile, Black Leopards ended life in the top flight with a 1-1 draw against a resilient Bloemfontein Celtic in a clash that was played at Thohoyandou Stadium.
Roderick Kabwe opened the scoring for an already relegated Leopards side in the first-half and he finished the season as the team’s joint-top scorer with five goals.
However, Reagan Van De Ross had other ideas as the Celtic attacker scored with 17 minutes left to ensure that the game ended in a draw.
