Mamelodi Sundowns 1-1 Maritzburg United

Posted: 8 August 2014 Time: 19:28

A 90th minute Mohammed Awal penalty secured a 1-1 draw for Maritzburg United against defending Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns at Loftus Stadium on Friday evening.

Katlego Mashego's early strike looked to have sealed all three points for the Brazilians, but a late spot-kick handed the Team of Choice a point.

Mame Niang made an immediate impact at his new club as he set-up Mashego for the opener with only two minutes on the clock.

Niang played Elias Pelembe's chip into the path of Mashego, who made no mistake from close-range to net the opening goal of the League season.

The Team of Choice went close through Van Wyk, who was spectacularly denied by Wayne Sandilands at his near post in the 6th minute.

Both sides continued to showcase an attacking brand of football.

Niang had a golden opportunity to open his account at the club following a goalkeeping blunder by Shu-aib Walters on the stroke of half-time, but the lanky forward could only manage to direct his effort wide of goal.

The goalmouth action died down in the second stanza with chances few and far between and with 20 minutes of regulation time remaining it seemed as if Sundowns were shutting up shop as Mosimane brought on centre back Mario Booysen for Percy Tau.

Niang went from hero to villain when he fouled Mondi Cele in the final minute of regulation time.

Victor Gomes pointed to the spot and Awal did the rest to make the final score 1-1.
