The SFA started the Round 22 match on fire with Dwaine Kinda scoring two goals in succession for a 2-0 lead.
Although trailing by two goals, Impala Chiefs did not give up and pressed hard for a goal causing all sorts of problems for the Swallows defence.
The ‘Birds’ as Swallows are also known, suppressed the pressure and added another goal through Ronaldino Kgobetsi to go into half time with a 3-0 lead.
The maroon and white outfit came out fired up in the second half and scored their fourth goal of the match through Kgobetsi for his second goal of the match.
