United captain Dean Furman put the home side in front midway through the first half through a penalty after his Wits counterpart Hlatswayo hacked down striker Kingston Nkatha in the box.
The Clever Boys came back from the break with guns blazing and it took them just two minutes to get back into the match when Mhango breezed past his markers to level the score at 1-1.
