Zanele Mbiyozo scored his 6th of the season from the penalty spot in the 15th minute, this after a Leruma player handled the ball after an Aces corner.
Collen Zimba was brought on for Tebogo Mathopa in the 29th minute as Aces then took control of the game.
A rare Leruma attack in the 40th minute was thwarted by a brilliant reactionary save from Clinton Davids who had a good game.
Collen Zimba got his 3rd and Aces 2nd in the 50th minute via a simple tap-in but Kurt Pienaar did the hard yards and provide a pinpoint cross.
The boys from Daveyton then pushed men forward for the latter part of the match but as expected Aces countered with pace, especially via Kurt Pienaar and the Gold City Giants were awarded a 2nd penalty which was converted by Ermano Barends to make it 3-nil to Aces.
The technical team rewarded the young Aces U17 Academy keeper, Alexi Appolonatos, with his maiden start for the 1st team as he came on for the last few minutes taking over from Clinton Davids.
Aces will now break for the Christmas holidays and will return to training on the 6th of Januray.
