- Stellenbosch FC defeated Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 in the DStv Premiership encounter at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch thanks to a Dean van Rooyen goal
- The defeat for Chiefs comes during a tough week where they sacked Englishman Stuart Baxter on Thursday
- The victory for the Maroons ensured that they completed a season sweep of the Amakhosi after defeating them back in November last year
It was more of the same for Kaizer Chiefs after they were defeated 1-0 away to Stellenbosch FC at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch.
This defeat for the Amakhosi comes in a tough week during which they lost to SuperSport United by the same scoreline last Saturday, before sacking coach Stuart Baxter on Thursday. The victory for the Maroons, courtesy of a Dean van Rooyen strike in the 20th minute, also ensured that they completed a season.
Chiefs, on 39 points in fourth place, are now mathematically eliminated from impossibly winning the title. Stellenbosch, meanwhile, consolidated their place in the Top 8 in sixth place with the same amount of points.
Stellenbosch next takes on SuperSport United on Tuesday afternoon, while Chiefs and Golden Arrows will meet on Wednesday night.

DStv Premiership match report: Golden Arrows and Sekhukhune United fire blanks
Golden Arrows and Sekhukhune United played out a poor 0-0 draw at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in Durban.
The government recently allowed spectators into venues, but after this match, not many would bother to witness what was a disappointing snorefest that lacked quality.
Both Arrows and United needed a victory to get into the Top 8, but did not seem interested in doing so.
