Nathaniel Asamoah netted a last-gasp strike as Aduana Stars thrice came from behind to snatch a 3-3 draw against Raja Casablanca on Wednesday in their second group game of the CAF Confederation Cup.

The Ghanaian champions were playing their first-ever CAF inter-clubs money zone match at the Nana Agyeman Badu II Park in Dormaa Ahenkro and ensured they avoided a second straight defeat in the competition.

The Fire Boys had Congolese youngster Oba Ikama Ulitch making his first appearance in the competition with a starting berth.

Niger international  Hainikoye Soumana Boubacar also came from the bench to make his debut for the home side.

The Moroccan giants took the lead when Mahmoud Benhalib beat the offside to fire past goalkeeper Joseph Addo.

Ten minutes later, Oba Ikama Ulitch scored on his African club competition debut to make it one all.

In the 39th minutes, Congolese international Lema Mabidi Chikito slotted in a corner kick to put Raja Casablanca ahead before halftime.

Just three minutes after recess, Aduana Stars came back into the game when Caleb Amankwah headed home a corner to level proceedings.

Mahmoud Benhalib got himself a brace on the afternoon after beautifully scoring the third for the visitors in the 61st minute.

Aduana needed substitute and former Raja Casablanca striker Nathaniel Asamoah to make it 3-3 for them in the 90th minute.

The one point from the game sees Aduana Stars languish in bottom of Group A whilst Raja Casablanca lies third with two points.

AS Vita Club lead the pack with four points with ASEC Mimosas a point behind them.
