Evans Rusike scored the opening goal in Maritzburg United’s 1-1 draw against Chippa United on Friday night.

The 27-year old striker went on target in the 64th minute when he fired home a grounder into the far post to put his team ahead. Chippa United levelled terms ten minutes later courtesy of Mxolisi Macuphu’s effort.

Rusike now has seven goals in this season, two behind leading scorer Rodney Ramagalela of Polokwane City.
