Soccer excites to end in draw

A ROVING Phil Dmitrieff snatched a vital point for Southside when he smashed home an injury-time equaliser against Nerimbera Brothers in their round seven Capricornia Soccer League 3-3 draw at Jardine Park on Saturday night.

With five minutes to go, Nerimbera's Lee Graham looked to have produced the match-winner when he headed home from close range.

However, Dmitrieff, playing against his former club, pounced on a scramble in the area to level scores in the dying seconds and cement his side a place in the top-four.

Nerimbera held a 2-1 lead at the break when a Joe Burke penalty ? one of three in the game ? reduced the deficit after Jade Sinclair found the net twice.

Southside pressed for the equaliser, which came through striker Matthew Bettridge mid-way in the second-half. In other games, a 10-man Bluebirds outfit returned to winning form with a 8-3 victory against Parkana.

In sensational circumstances, Brazilian striker Eduardo was sent-off after he was booked twice for his good-natured goal celebrations.

A Mitch Williams double inspired CQU Berserker to a 2-1 win over Central in Gladstone.

Also in Gladstone, competition surprise packets Clinton crushed Cap Coast 4-1 to continue their winning ways.

Premiership leaders Frenchville thrashed BITS 11-0, with young striker Dane Howard adding to his impressive season tally with a four-goal haul.
