PORT Elizabeth soccer outfit Bay Stars stayed on the winning trail in their Safa Eastern Cape Second Division campaign when they beat Zimbane Killers 2-0 at the Royal Stadium in Mthatha on Saturday.
Stars were held to a goalless scoreline in the first half, but things changed after the break.
The visitors' striker, Orlin Powell, opened the scoring with a fine strike.
Substitute Sinethemba Mthi doubled the score in the dying minutes of the game. Stars are a step closer to their dream of reaching the top spot on the log. The Stars are now in second position on the log, only two points behind logleaders Mthatha Bucks.
"Our goal is to reach the playoffs at the end of the season," Stars team manager Nicholas Myataza said.
He said the players were in good spirits because they had lost only one match in the season so far.
Meanwhile, the second PE team in the competition, Highbury, played to a goalless draw against Matta Milan at the Ngumbela Ground.
The Highbury side played their hearts out, but could only collect one point from the match.
"It's better to get a point than losing and I'm pleased with the way the team conducted themselves," said Highbury coach Garth Dickinson.
He said he believed the team would achieve their goal of reaching the top eight.
