City leave it to very end

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

A LAST-minute penalty has helped Cock­burn City snare a draw from the jaws of de­feat against Joon­dalup United on Satur­day af­ter­noon.

Joon­dalup hit the front through a penalty in the 34th minute and looked like run­ning away with a win un­til the 93rd minute, when Cock­burn’s Jesse Laz­zaro found him­self on the end of a slid­ing tackle that the ref­eree deemed reck­less, award­ing the vis­i­tors a penalty.

Harry O’Brien was able to guide the ball past the keeper. Cock­burn coach Scott Miller said the penalty was jus­ti­fied.
