Free State are the SAB League Championships winners after walloping hosts North West 4-2 in an exciting final played at the University of North West, Mafikeng Campus on Sunday, 20 July.
In a match attended by SAFA President, Dr Danny Jordaan and several NEC members and SAFA Provincial leaders, Free State completed an amazing week in which they played the most enterprising football and were full value of their gold medals position.
Goals from hat-trick hero Mbuyiselo Thethani and another from Kgotso Mofokeng consigned the home team to silver medallists.
Thethani opened the scoring for Free State in the 13th minute before Letlhogonolo Mogwera levelled for North West midway through the second half.
Mofokeng then restored Free State’s lead before Thethani scored two late killer goals to take the match away from the home side who still managed to pull one back through double scorer Mogwera.
