African Stars and Black Africa shared the spoils in an exciting Katutura derby in front of about 5 000 fans at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Friday night. Stars drew first blood when Ninja Karongee scored on 25m, but BA equalised early in the second half when Marco van Wyk headed in from a corner. Both teams pushed hard for the winner in the final stages with swift attacks and counter attacks but the opposing defences stood firm.
