Judas Mosemaedi scored twice in stoppage-time to help Mpumalanga Black Aces to a thrilling 2-2 draw against Platinum Stars on Wednesday evening.
Ndumiso Mabena gave the visitors a 2-0 lead and Cavin Johnson's men looked sure to end the evening top of the League table, but Mosemaedi had plans of his own.
With Bidvest Wits beating Orlando Pirates 1-0 in Soweto, Aces and Stars slip to second and third respectively, level on points and still unbeaten after seven rounds.
Mabena opened the scoring from the spot for the visitors after Collins Mbesuma fouled his fellow former Buccaneer inside the area.
Stars were unlucky not to be 2-0 up nine minutes later, with Masibusane Zongo seeing his free-kick canon of the woodwork.
Aces finally found their rhythm after the break, but after Mbesuma saw his shot hit the post, Stars doubled their lead through Mabena, who completed his brace from the penalty spot on the hour-mark – though the penalty was incredibly soft.
Muhsin Ertugral introduced Mosemaedi soon after, but even the coach could never have envisaged what would follow.
First the AmaZayoni youngster rose highest to halve the deficit in the third minute of stoppage time, before striking home the equaliser with what was the final kick of the game.
