Second half goals from Tebogo Tloane and Andile Mbenyane took the home side to victory.
Chippa had the early chances as Kurt Lentjies headed over from close range following a Thabo Rakhale cross before Rakhale miscued a 10th minute volley.
Maritzburg could have scored first though - after Justice Figuareido whipped in a great cross in 24th minute, but from close range, Thabiso Kutumela failed to get a decisive touch on the ball.
The Chilli Boys had a couple of more opportunities befor the interval, but had to wait eigth minutes into the second half before they scored, Tloane smashing a left-footed shot from 30-yards out into the top corner.
The second goal came in the 63rd minute, when Mbenyane’s flick from a Lentjies corner, the ball deflected off defender Rushine De Reuck and into the net.
The Team of Choice were able to create a couple of half chances, but Chippa were on top of their game and it took a couple of excellent saves from goalkeeper Richard Ofori to keep out efforts from Boikanyo Komane, Lerato Manzini and Rakhale as the hosts went on to claim all three points.
