Jomo Sono’s side looked to have the tactics right on the day as they pressed hard in midfield and kept a tight defensive stranglehold on their visitors, adding to their advantage by scoring midway through the first half through Linda Mntambo. It was all going according to plan for Cosmos until a desperate Maritzburg, facing the imminent drop, equalised through substitute Mohau Mokate in the 82nd minute equaliser.
Four minutes later it was 2-1 as Abia Nale set up Evans Rusike and then in stoppage time, as Cosmos threw their usual caution to the wind in search of an equaliser, Rusike got another on the counter attack to compete a whirlwind comeback.
