PIETERMARITZBURG – Peter Shalulile scored in added time at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday night to secure Highlands Park a 1-1 Premiership draw against Maritzburg United.
In a lively, evenly-matched and high-tempo affair with regular scoring chances at both ends, Kwanda Mngonyama gave the Team of Choice a 56th-minute lead, before Shalulile netted right at the death to silence the sizeable home crowd.
The first opportunity fell the way of Maritzburg after six minutes played, but from close range, Thabiso Kutumela fired his shot straight at goalkeeper Marlon Heugh.
While United were enjoying more possession, Highlands Park were looking to profit on the counter-attack through the pace of Shalulile.
The Namibian was to have a series of chances midway through the half, with two of them sailing over the bar and another into the back of the net – only for the offside flag to go up.
