Friday’s DSTV Premiership Result

Judas Moseamedi scored a brace for Maritzburg United, but Stellenbosch came from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw in Friday’s only DSTV Premiership game.

Maritzburg United 2-2 Stellenbosch

It took just two and a half minutes for Judas Moseamedi to open the scoring. Dayton Claasen passed the ball to Moseamedi, who turned well to make space and shoot and beat his former Cape Town City teammate Sage Stephens, who was starting his first game in goal for Stellenbosch.

Marc Van Heerden equalised for Stellenbosch in the 10th minute. After starting a swift counter attack, Van Heerden was there to finish off the move, heading in after being set up by Jayden Adams.

Moseamedi had a second five minutes later, after a defensive error. Moseamedi intercepted a pass from goalkeeper Stephens and made no mistake.

In the 23rd minute Maritzburg goalkeeper Sebastian Mwange was on hand to make a good save from a shot by Ashley Du Preez, that went on to hit the crossbar.

It was end to end action, and there was more woodwork in play in the 37th minute when Fares Hachi’s attempt struck the goal frame and bounced clear. Two minutes later Stephens made a good save to deny Moseamedi his hat-trick.

Stanley Dimgba equalised for Stellenbosch in the 59th minute, running onto the end of a Du Preez cross, and the Nigerian made no mistake.

Keagan Buchanan hit the woodwork in the 68th minute, with a good attempt from a free kick.

Despite committed efforts from both sides, neither team could find a winner.

Maritzburg United remain win-less this season, and in fact have not won a match since March 2020.
