Aces fell behind via a Teko Modise penalty, but wasted no time getting back on level terms, taking less than a minute to equalise through Onyekachi Okonkwo.
Mabokgwane revealed his pride in getting results against the big teams after recalling how the side had similarly spoiled Kaizer Chiefs' title chances last season.
"I remember last season around this time we beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 at the FNB Stadium and that indirectly helped Sundowns in winning the title," Mabokgwane said.
This season it is a complete reversal as the result may have handed Kaizer Chiefs the title by scuppering Sundowns' chances.
Mabokgwane also took time out to praise the fans that turned up to support the club on the night.
"Tonight, the Friends of Aces came in numbers to support us. Thank you. We always appreciate football fans at our stadium," he added.
"What a tough league this has turned out to be though. Job well done Mpumalanga Black Aces family. We'll take the point."
Aces remain in 12th position after the result but move five points clear of the relegation places.
However, the situation could still change as all of the teams below them have a game in hand.
Sundowns are seven points behind Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the table with just six league games of the season remaining.
