WITS, ARROWS PLAY TO THRILLING DRAW

Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows played to a 2-all draw at Bidvest Stadium.

Bidvest Wits were unable to capitalize on an explosive start where the hosts scored two early goals, as Golden Arrows staged a massive comeback to share the points at the Bidvest Stadium.

The Clever Boys got off to a good start and were awarded a penalty after 15 minutes after continuous pressure on the Arrows defence, which Simon Murray converted to hand Wits side the lead.

It was one-way traffic from the onset as Arrows struggled to deal with the threat of Elias Pelembe and Deon Hotto down the flanks, as well as the combination play of Murray and Gift Motupa.

Wits doubled their lead in the 26th minute as Hotto turned provider after some superb build-up play to pick out Gift Motupa, who headed home in style.

Thabang Monare and Motupa both came close to increasing Wits’ lead even further in the first half, but the score remained 2-0 at the half-time break.

The visitors managed to pull a goal back early in the second half through Seth Parusnath’s finishing off a counter attack.

Arrows were awarded a penalty of their own on the hour mark, which Wayde Jooste converted to level matters.

Gavin Hunt’s men went in search of a winning goal, but was let down by some of the finishing.

The visitors came close to securing all three points at the end, but Darren Keet pulled off a superb save to keep the score level.

The Clever Boys remain in second spot on the Absa Premiership log, with a trip to Baroka next on the agenda.
