Zimbabwean international Evans Rusike scored as Maritzburg United ended Mamelodi Sundowns title ambitions with a 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening.
Sundowns needed to win to keep up with Bidvest Wits but failed to do so as the ‘The Students’ clinched their first ABSA Premiership title after a 2-0 win over Polokwane City.
Brian Onyango opened the scoring for Maritzburg United before Rusike doubled the lead with a well-taken goal by chipping the ball over the keeper.
Sundowns made a late rally to level the score but the damage had been done. There was further bad news for Sundowns with both Billiat and Bangaly Soumahoro leaving the field with injuries.
