Result: Highlands Park 2-2 Mamelodi Sundowns
Date: 27 May 2017
Venue: Makhulong Stadium
Highlands Park were relegated to the National First Division, after playing out a 2-2 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday afternoon.
Highlands took the game to Sundowns in the opening exchanges, but were unable to carve out a clear-cut chance in the opening 15 minutes.
After a quiet opening, Sundowns carved out their first chance in the 19th minute when Tebogo Langerman's cross found Yannick Zakri, who headed straight at Tapuwa Kapini.
Pitso Mosimane's charges started seeing more of the ball as the first half went on and Percy Tau in particular was proving to be real handful down the left flank.
Sundowns eventually broke the deadlock on 35 minutes when Themba Zwane curled home a sublime strike from 25-yards out.
Four minutes later, the visitors were awarded a penalty when Zakri was brought down Kapini. Thabo Nthethe stepped up and converted the spot kick, 0-2.
However, Highlands pulled a goal back just before the halftime break Seun Ledwaba surged into the box, before slotting under Denis Onyango.
