DESPATCH Pioneers came down from 2-0 to force their SAFA Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB) SAB Regional League game against Camper United into a 2-2 draw at Motherwell NU 9 Stadium on Sunday.

Camper took the game to their counterparts from the outset. The home side scored their opening goal courtesy of Samkelo Monki.

Camper failed dismally to score goals in the first half and Pioneers seemed to be sluggish, but their veteran midfielder, Dumisani Ngobe Msongelwa, was very instrumental in the centre of the field. In the last minutes of the first half, Pioneers skipper Luvuyo Tshawe Gewu’s effort went wide with Camper’s goalkeeper well ­beaten.

Camper increased their lead to 2-0 after Lukhanyo Sherriff Rasmeni fired a thunderous shot into the back of the net. Gewu and Msongelwa read each other like an open book after they played good touches.

It seemed that Camper were on the edge as their defence made some needless mistakes in crucial areas. Gewu laid a good pass to Msongelwa, who slotted the ball into the near post to leave Camper’s goalkeeper beaten.

Msongelwa once again delivered a perfect pass to Sixoliseni Booysen, who scored Pioneers’ equalising goal in the last minutes of the game.
