Cape Town - Judas Mosemaedi scored twice in stoppage time to help Mpumalanga Black Aces to a thrilling 2-2 draw against Platinum Stars in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday evening. 

Ndumiso Mabena handed the visitors a 2-0 lead and Cavin Johnson's men looked sure to end the evening atop the league table, but Mosemaedi had plans of his own. 

With Bidvest Wits beating Orlando Pirates 1-0 in Soweto, Aces and Stars slip to second and third respectively, level on points and still unbeaten after seven rounds of league fixtures. 

Mabena opened the scoring for the visitors from 12 yards after Collins Mbesuma fouled his fellow former Buccaneer inside the area - Mabena duly stepped up to net his first goal since May on 21 minutes. 

Stars were unlucky not to be 2-0 up nine minutes later with Masibusane Zongo seeing his left-footed free-kick canon of the woodwork. 

Aces finally found their rhythm after the break, but after Mbesuma saw his shot against the post, Stars doubled their lead through Mabena, who completed his brace from the penalty spot on the hour. 

Muhsin Ertugral introduced Mosemaedi soon after, but the Turkey born mentor could never have envisaged what would follow. 

First the AmaZayoni youngster rose highest to halve the deficit in the third minute of stoppage time, before striking home the equaliser with what was the final kick of the game.
