Cape Town - Stellenbosch FC fought back from two goals down to salvage 2-2 draw away to Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership clash at the Sugar Ray Xulu on Saturday.
Knox Mutizwa hit a brace in the first half for Arrows but Iqraam Rayners and Ryan Moon struck for Stellies in the second stanza to take a point back to the Cape Winelands.
The hosts started the match on the front foot and it was Mutizwa who opened the scoring in the 11th minute after he was put through on goal and the forward made no mistake.
Mutizwa doubled Abafana Bes'thende's lead in the 29th minute as the Stellenbosch defence were at sixes and sevens and the Arrows player made no mistake as he calmly put the ball past goalkeeper Boy de Jong.
Arrows seemed to be cruising and went into the halftime break with a two-goal advantage and perhaps complacency found its way into their game after the interval.
Stellies, on the other hand, seemed like a different unit and finally tested Arrows shot-stopper Edmore Sibanda with Rayners kept out.
However, it did not take long for the visitors to get back into the match as Rayners slotted past to keeper reduce the deficit on the hour mark.
The equaliser came just two minutes later as a long ball into the box by Mark van Heerden was headed home by Moon with Sibanda coming a long way from his goal to no avail.
Arrows seemed to wake up from the slumber and tested De Jong again late in the game but Stellenbosch held on to force a 2-2 draw.
