The opening goal was scored by the pirates striker Benni McCarthy in Shaib Walters polls through Mbuyane's corner.

Orlando Pirates started to loose their game when Benni  was senty  off the pitch by the official red card due to the hitting of Maritzburg defender.

Benni's goal didn't lead the  the Buccaneers forever when Maritzburg striker Diyo Sibisi equalised in 49th minute and later in the game Mor Diouf scored a goal for his team to lead in the second half.

Buccaneers fans didn't expect what was coming to them  when some fans started to leave Harry Gwala stadium last night.

Pirates fan shocked

Substitute Bongani Ndulula almost  equalize late on, but  Maritzburg solid defender Petersen produced a timely defense to keep their goal  post protected  and secure the three points.

Maritzburg United went home last night while the Happy people turned to be the "sad people" going home with nothing but tears..
