However, it was “Baroque” needed more points, as the club sat at the bottom of the table.
Bakgaga entered the game after defeating the Golden Arrows 1-0. And they set their mission to continue and win their last three games, including the Chippa game, trying to maintain their top Premier League status.
And for Chip, any point was valuable to them as long as they could walk a good distance between them and the sides that threatened to take off.
In the game, Limpopo’s equipment saw their fierce struggle, as a result of which they came from behind and took the lead in the final stages of the match.
Chip took the lead through Ryan Hanamub in the 66th minute, but it was Bakgagi’s response that caused many to hear.
The club at the bottom of the log managed to equalize thanks to Dan Ndlow in the 75th minute before taking the lead, hitting Decide Chauke, remaining just two minutes of normal time.
But it wasn’t over until the final whistle sounded, and it certainly was when the Chilli Boys equalized in extra minutes thanks to Tokazani Sekotlong’s superb strike.
Sekotlong’a’s goal was heartfelt for everyone involved with Baroka, and it seemed the team was going to collect their second straight three points.
The result means that Baroque remains at the bottom of the league with 22 points, and by the end of the campaign there are only two games left, and Chip is in 12th place out of 27, being in the safe zone.
