Game 2: Wits snatch victory at the death against UWC

Both teams squandered opportunities until UJ’s Mokete Mogaila chipped the Tuks keeper from 30 metres out to score what the home supporters thought was the winning goal. But just minutes later, Tuks equalised when Chinedu Okolo headed in from close range to earn the visitors a point.

Lebogang Phetlhu added to their advantage 20 minutes later. That was how the scores remained as NWU top the log after round two.
