Stars steal point at Highlands
Posted: 30 October 2016 Time: 15:25
Free State Stars scored late on to fight back to a 2-2 draw away to Highlands Park at the Makhulong Stadium on Sunday.
Armand Ella Ken grabbed a last-gasp equaliser for Stars as the Lions of the North surrendered a two-goal lead to grab a point.
Edwin Sitayitayi grabbed the opener for the hosts in as early as the sixth minute, as the hosts went into the half-time break with a one-goal lead.
Thapelo Mothibe then doubled the hosts' lead just after the hour mark, as Highlands were fully in control of proceedings.
However, the lead lasted just two minutes as Thokozani Sekotlong pulled one back for Ea Lla Koto, paving the way for an exciting end to the match.
And so it was, as Ella Ken scored in the final minute of regulation time to give Giovanni Solinas' side a hard-earned point away from home.
