On this day back in November 2016: A clinical SuperSport United punished Orlando Pirates 6-1 in their Absa Premiership clash at the Mbombela Stadium.
It was Pirates who opened the scoring when Tendai Ndoro slotted the ball home after a first-time cross from Rakhale on the right.
Just when Pirates started to get comfortable in possession Reinelwe Letsholonyane smashed home the 52nd-minute equaliser past Brighton Mhlongo at the near post.
Two minutes later Letsholonyane turned provider as he drilled a cross towards Michael Boxall, who found the back of the net from close range.
A mistake from Mhlongo gifted United their third in the 56th minute when he palmed a free-kick straight into a group of SuperSport players, resulting in Boxall slotting the ball home for his second.
United scored their fourth goal shortly after the half-hour mark when Thuso Phala pounced on an effort from Mhlongo to fire the back into the net.
Phala then turned provider in the 74th minute when he picked out Bradley Grobler, who fired his strike beyond Mhlongo to make it 5-1.
United piled the misery on Pirates in the 88th minute when they were awarded a penalty. Jeremy Brockie stepped up and made no mistake from the spot-kick.
Pirates had a chance to redeem themselves late in the game when they were awarded a penalty of their out, but Ndoro failed to bypass Ronwen Williams as he denied the Buccaneers a consolation goal.
