Abel Mabaso was fortunate to escape a caution — and arguably even more — in the fourth minute for a reckless challenge on Fortune Makaringe.
 
The Team of choice were clearly in control early on, heaping pressure on the visiting defence. They should have taken the lead in the 16th minute, when Lebohang Maboe’s cut-back from the left found Deolin Mekoa, who somehow hooked his shot wide.
 
Against the run of play, Chippa were awarded a 25th minute penalty for a Brian Onyango handball. However, Richard Ofori came to Maritzburg’s rescue, getting down low to save James Okwuosa’s spot-kick.
 
Evans Rusike became the next player to waste a decent goalscoring chance, firing over the bar after being set up by a clever Andrea Fileccia pass in the 41st minute.
 
Zita Macheke was the second Chippa man to escape a possible red card when his studs-up lunge on Siphesihle Ndlovu 50 minutes in produced no more than a yellow.
 
Teboho Moloi made the first substitution of the game straight afterwards, bringing Thabo Rakhale on for Xolani Maholo, who had been booked in the 18th minute.
 
The Team of Choice suffered a blow 63 minutes in, when Makaringe was stretchered off and replaced by Bandile Shandu.
 
However, they responded in the best possible fashion a minute later — with a Rusike goal. The Zimbabwean struck the ball first time after receiving a pass in the box and nestled his low shot in the bottom corner.
 
In response, the Chilli Boys brought Buyani Sali on for Paseka Mako.
 
The substitution paid off as Sali pounced on a poor pass from an opponent and set Mxolisi Machupu up for a 72nd minute equaliser.
 
Fileccia so nearly put Maritzburg back ahead two minutes later, firing just over the bar after meeting Maboe’s incisive pass.
 
Having already made one inspired substitution, Moloi made his final change in the 82nd minute, bringing Andile Mbenyane on for Kurt Lentjies.
 
Three minutes later, Machupu nearly put the Port Elizabeth-based side ahead, rattling the crossbar and just missing out on a second goal.
 
Yazid Atouba then replaced Deolin Mekoa for Maritzburg in the 86th minute before Motsie Matima came on for Onyango in the 90th.
 
Maritzburg survived a late scare in the final minute of stoppage time when Machupu appealed for a foul from Pogiso Sanoka in the box, but referee Tshidiso Maruping was unmoved.
 
Try as they might, neither Teboho Moloi nor Fadlu Davids could inspire a winner as the two teams shared the spoils.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Maritzburg:  31. Ofori, 3. Sanoka, 25. Xulu, 2. Onyango, 23. De Reuck, 11. Makaringe, 8. Ndlovu, 28. Mekoa, 15. Maboe, 19. Rusike , 9. Fileccia.
 
Chippa: 1. Akpeyi, 22. Modisane, 2. Okwuosa, 4. Macheke, 31. Hachi, 33. Maholo, 27. Mabaso, 23. Mntambo, 7. Mako, 32. Lentjies, 17. Macuphu.

@Kekana + Ace Manyisa = Double Troubble, indidane concluded Akere, that inexperienced Maritzburg United defender gave away the lead. Yeah, sometimes the club had to pay the ultimate price for throwing kids at the deeper end.
