The Black Antelopes went ahead in the 20th minute through former Manchester United striker Manucho who took advantage of lax Stars defending and chipped over the onrushing home keeper Arnold Origi.

Jamal Mohamed tied the game at 1-1 three minutes after coming on in the second half to give the home side something to feed on after being pressurized by the Antelopes for most of the afternoon.
