Chippa United 1-1 Maritzburg United
14 February 2015
Terrance Mandaza scored 15 minutes from time to ensure that Maritzburg’s trip down to PE was a not a fruitless one, following a 1-1 draw with Chippa United.
Chippa had early chances at goal through George Akpabio, but he placed his 3rd minute header wide before Siyabulela Shai missed the target a few minutes later.
Maritzburg’s first chance came in the 28th minute but midfielder Nhlanhla Vilakazi failed to find the target.
Chippa took the lead six minutes before the break when Akpabio scored with a right footed shot following good work by Gert Barends.
The Team of Choice had opportunities after the break, but Vilakazi was denied by Mbongeni Mzimela before Ashley Hartog also got in an effort on goal.
But in the 76th minute the Team of Choice were back on level terms when substitute Terrance Mandaza netted.
Andile Mbenyane nearly claimed all three points for Chippa but his 79th minute effort was tipped over the bar by Virgil Vries.
