Aces, who lost their previous two league matches, were highly motivated to get their season going - and they did just that in fine style!
Coach Ashwin Sutton must of thought the odds were stacked against his team when they went a goal down early in the 1st half and he immediately introduced Dingaan Metsi for Milano Sampson.
The switch worked and Aces looked stung but immediately got their game on track and soon equalised through Paballo Mngomezulu. 1-1.
Last seasons lethal striker, Zanele 'Theo' Mbiyozo put the Gold City Giants 2-1 up early in the 2nd half through a penalty.
Mbiyozo then struck his second and Aces 3rd which was a well deserved reflection of the game.
Philani Khwela replaced O'Neil Hendricks and Mthokozisi Yende came on for Ermano Barends as Aces shut up shop.
A fine win and one well deserved from Aces, who showed true grit and character and they showed that they will be a force in this seasons league.
