Civics beat African Stars 3-0 on Wednesday evening to move four points clear of Stars in the battle for second place.
Stars enjoyed most of the possession but could not do much with it as they found Civics’ defence difficult to break down. Civics, on the other hand, were clinical in finishing and all three their goals came via counterattacks against the run of play.
Heini Isaacs opened the scoring on 24m, while Sadney Urikhob made it 2-0 just before halftime.
Costa Khaiseb sealed Civics’ victory with a third goal three minutes from time.
