The result saw All Stars sliding to fourth on the standings, swapping places with Bale United who ascended to third.
Rinae Mokgonyana left it till late for Annel Real Vikings, his solitary goal against Masisi Young Stars deep into the second half sealed all the three points for Ambition Mokwena's side and propelled them to top of the league table.
