Polokwane City beat Highlands Park 3-2 in an Absa Premiership game played at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Saturday afternoon.

The win took Rise and Shine to position five on the league standings, while the Lions of the North are placed 12th.

Rise and Shine were put into the lead by Thobani Mncwango, who fired past Dikwena goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini just five minutes into the game.

Parity was restored on the half-hour make when Collins Mbesuma beat Polokwane keeper George Chigova from the spot-kick to make it 1-1 for Highlands.

Three minutes later, Sipho Jembula made it 2-1 to Polokwane, but Charlton Mashumba equalized six minutes before half-time.

However, Jabulani Maluleke sealed Polokwane's 3-2 win eight minutes after the hour mark with Puleng Tlolane providing an assist.

Rise and Shine recorded their first league victory of the season, with the Lions of the North registering a second consecutive league defeat.
