Seven minutes before the break, Robert Ng'ambi doubled the lead for Stars.

Ng'ambi's shot had the beating of Brandon Peterson in the Ajax goal as the visitors were dealt a hammer blow before the interval.

Mduduzi Nyanda sealed the match as a contest in the 77th minute with Stars' third. Nyanda was on target with a free kick as his side ended the season with a flourish. – Sapa
