Babina Noko were out of sight early in the second stanza after Liver Bros were reduced to ten men following the red- card of Tonny Khosa, who also conceded a penalty, which Chibuike Ohizu converted to extend the lead..
Sekhukhune strengthened the team with experienced fresh legs after the hour-mark, as the likes of Linda Mntambo, Tashreeq Morris and Kamohelo Mokotjo entered the park.
Babina Noko's experience was too much for Liver Bros with ten minutes to go as Mncube made it 4-0 with a strike in the box after he was setup by Morris.
