DURBAN, South Africa - Orlando Pirates put three final defeats this season behind them by defeating Wits University 3-1 Saturday to lift the South African FA Cup.

Midfielder Jabulani Shongwe had given Wits a 1-0 half-time lead before a sell-out 54,000 crowd at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Indian Ocean city Durban.

Shongwe gave goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa no chance from close range on 26 minutes after the referee waved play on when Wits' lively Calvin Kadi was felled inside the box.

Pirates attacked from the start of the second half and Erasmus levelled on 52 minutes via a deflected shot after connecting with an Oupa Manyisa cut-back.

Myeni refused to celebrate scoring against his previous club 11 minutes later having squeezed a low cross past goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs at his near post. A throw-in led to Pirates' third goal on 72 minutes.
