Maritzburg United and Highlands Park played an exciting 2-2 sketch of the Absa Premiership on Friday night.
It was a return to the pitch for Tendai Ndoro who made his debut for visitors after a drama filled up for a few months for him outside the court.
It was a slow start on both sides and they were very little separated in the way of clear goals to score goals.
In 21 minutes, Ndoro opened space inside the box, but shot straight at Richard Ofori for the first chance of opening.
A few minutes later, Maritzburg pushed back when the late Yannic Zakra led him to head to the cross of Fortune Makaringe.
With the lead intact, the team selection was solid and maintained a good defensive form to start the break in control.
As far as the mountains are concerned, several crossed crosses failed to detect any of the targeted targets with strong defenses on the other side, guarding them at a glance.
Second half began to drum, and Lindokuhle Mbatha landed on a loose ball that fired from the equalizer box with the help of refusal.
In just a few minutes later, Moho Mokate stole the space inside the box to return home and return home team leadership.
The tie between the Ofori and his defense almost led Gornji to pull one more goal, but the danger was quickly stopped and half halted with Pogiso Sanoke's shot.
The first substitution for Owen Da Gama was 62 minutes, and Elliot Seema came to debutant Mahlatse Makhudubel.
The blue and white brigades were fortunate that the man did not send after Siphesihle Ndlovu had fallen unhappy with the official team.
Tembisa was the level in the pot, and Mothobi Mvala was the first in the 69th minute.
The attempts of Defender Bandile Shandu to return the lead on the other hand stopped with the good spell of Tapuwa Kapini after a few minutes.
The upper positions had the opportunity to take all three points when deputy Moeketsi Sekola failed to punish a poor defender after failing the opportunity.
A minute later, the same individual was again on the door with the aim of his grace in the same scenario, but he was still unable to use it.
In the past, Maritzburg almost stole a win, but a good defense guard secured the ball for safety, leaving them with a prey in the match hosts needed to wrap.
