Marumo Gallants score late equaliser at Stellenbosch

Marumo Gallants scored late into their DStv Premiership clash with Stellenbosch on Tuesday night to claim a 1-1 draw on the road.

The Cape Winelands outfit were on the front foot in the early exchanges and found the back of the net in the 20th minute, but unfortunately from an offside position.

Shortly thereafter Mervin Boji threatened to put the hosts in the lead as he broke clear on goal, but this time goalkeeper Washington Arubi kept it out.

The teams remained deadlocked at 0-0 when half-time rolled around.

Five minutes into the second stanza the breakthrough arrived for Stellies as Junior Mendieta curled a shot home to claim a 1-0 lead.

The goal also marked Stellenbosch's 100th goal in the DStv Premiership.

Marumo arrived late with some pressure as they pressed forward to snatch a late goal.

Sage Stephens was called upon to make a smart double save in the 85th minute to maintain the home side's fragile lead.

However, his efforts came to nought in the end as Ranga Chivaviro scored an equaliser at the death to salvage a point for the travellers.
