Posted: 26 September 2012 Time: 20:34
A late goal from Dove Wome saw Free State Stars and Golden Arrows play to a 1-1 draw in their Premiership match at Charles Mopeli Stadium on Wednesday night.
A first-half strike from Norman Smith had seemingly put the visitors on course for victory, only for the hosts to rally late on.
Thamsanqa Gabuza talked his way into the referee’s book in the 20th minute, remonstrating with the referee after a foul by Luyolo Nomandela on Norman Smith.
Smith got his own back just past the half-hour mark when he put Arrows 1-0 up, shooting home from Ntlantha Zothwane's pass.
Stars’ Noah Chivuta tried to get his team back on level terms with a trio of shots between the 34th and 39th minutes, but only one was on target and it was easily saved by Steinbors.
Stars kept plugging away, but their finishing let them down, with Katlego Mashego firing just over near the end.
Finally, on 84 minutes, the Stars drew level as they had been threatening to do virtually the entire second half. Wome fired a shot past the keeper after a good pass by Gege had created the opportunity.
