Zimbabweans Kudakwashe Mahachi and Knox Mutizwa scored in stoppage time to seal a 4-1 win for Golden Arrows over AmaZulu Sunday and top place in the South African Premiership.
Arrows lead Maritzburg United, Baroka and Orlando Pirates on goal difference after four rounds of the richest African league with a $755,000 (635,000 euros) first prize.
Only Pirates among the quartet have won the Premiership, and the last of their four titles came six season ago.
Promoted AmaZulu were out of luck as they chased an equaliser with a shot striking both posts before rebounding into play during the final minute of regular time.
They cursed their bad luck as Mahachi raced unchallenged after a through ball, rounded the goalkeeper and tapped the ball into an unguarded net for a 3-1 lead.
Substitute Mutizwa then connected with a cut-back and his shot went into the far corner of the net to complete the scoring in the Durban derby.
Another foreigner to net in the match was Togolese Sedat Ouro-Akoriko, whose first-half goal cancelled the lead Lerato Lamola gave Arrows.
Siphelele Magubane struck 11 minutes after half-time to regain the lead for Arrows, whose highest league finish was fifth in the 2008-2009 season.
Maritzburg were held 0-0 at home by Pirates in a match of few clearcut scoring chances with defences dominant.
Pirate Ntsikelelo Nyauza did poke the ball into the net soon after half-time, but the goal was disallowed for a foul during the build-up.
It was the Buccaneers' third clean sheet in four Premiership games under new Serb coach Milutin "Micho" Sredojevic -- a welcome change from the leaky defending of last season.
Baroka took 85 minutes to break down Free State Stars and win 1-0 through a deflected Mpho Kgaswane shot in northern city Polokwane.
Recent addition Amr Gamal, the first Egyptian to play in the Premiership, salvaged a 1-1 draw for title-holders Wits at Kaizer Chiefs with a stoppage-time goal.
Trailing from early in the second half when Siphiwe Tshabalala scored, and down to 10 men after the red-carding of Nazeer Allie, Wits seemed doomed to a third league loss.
But former Al Ahly goal-poacher Gamal came to the rescue two minutes into additional time, rifling a low shot past goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune from the edge of the box.
A Prince Nxumalo brace gave Ajax Cape Town a 2-0 home win over Polokwane City and bottom club Platinum Stars secured their first point by drawing 0-0 with Chippa United.
