Sangweni goal rescues Chippa

Posted: 3 December 2014 Time: 22:08

A late equaliser from Thamsanqa Sangweni rescued a point for Chippa United in a thrilling 2-2 Absa Premiership draw with Mpumalanga Black Aces in Port Elizabeth.

Mpho Mvelase netted an early goal for the hosts before Aces went ahead via Tendai Ndoro and Aubrey Ngoma. Sangweni left it late to steal an equaliser in the 86th minute.

Chippa got off to a bright start when Mvelase slotted home in the fifth minute following Andile Mbenyane’s support work.

The goal spurred Aces into action and after 11 minutes Aubrey Ngoma hit the post, and a few minutes later Ndoro missed a good chance.

Just after the half-hour mark Aces came close to their equaliser when Eddie Ngalo got above the Chippa defence but his header went just wide of the target.

Ten minutes into the second half Aces found their goal when star forward Ndoro slotted home following Okonkwo’s supply from midfield.

But then Aces’ second goal came when Tukane took a quick set-piece to find Ngoma, who was on hand to put the chance away with his left foot.

To cap off an exciting night of football, Sangweni grabbed an equaliser with a right-footed finish to after some good work from James Okwuosa.

The drawn result means Chippa remain in third place with 21 points, while Aces are in position eight.
