Cape Town - The SuperSport United and Orlando Pirates Absa Premiership clash was abandoned due to the flood lights malfunctioning on Tuesday evening.
The Peter Mokaba Stadium's lights went off eight minutes into the second-half as Pirates looked to equalise following Michael Boxall's first-half strike.
The New Zealand international found himself at the end of a David Mathebula free-kick and scored past Brighton Mhlongo in goal.
However, in the 63rd minute the stadium was plunged into darkness.
Twitter went into a frenzy suggesting that load shedding was not the problem.
"I think it's stadium lights malfunctioning and not load shedding. No load shedding was announced today," said one Twitter user.
Stadium management confirmed that it was not a load shedding issue and that the flood lights along with the generators kept malfunctioning.
After several attempts to get the lights back on both sides were guided back to their dressing rooms as the match commissioner attempted to resolve the issue.
