Baroka FC and Polokwane City shared the spoils in the Limpopo derby after a 2-2 draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.
Tshepiso Lietsisa bagged a stoppage time equaliser to spare the blushes of Bakgaga just when Rise and Shine thought they were home and dry.
The first chance of the match fell in the way of the 'visitors' as Thobani Mncwango volleyed over the crossbar from close range in the fifth minute.
Bakgaga then took the lead two minutes later as Marshall Munetsi tapped home unmarked from a corner.
Rodney Ramagalela then grabbed the equaliser just seven minutes later after completing a great solo run from just after the half-way line, but needed two bites at the cherry before beating Oscarine Masuluke.
Munetsi then forced George Chigova off his feet with a well taken looping header just before the break, but the Polokwane keeper did well to hold onto the ball.
Rise and Shine then took the lead for the first time in the match on the hour mark as Puleng Tlolane netted with a fine diving header.
However, Kgoloko Thobejane's side showed a never-say-die attitude as Lietsisa scored in the seventh minute of stoppage time to retain a point.
