Phoenix rises from ashes

Sunday Herald Sun - - Soccer -

WELLING­TON showed its char­ac­ter af­ter claw­ing back a two-goal deficit to draw with Western Syd­ney in Auck­land last night.

A mea­sured open­ing stanza be­came an end-toend sec­ond half as both teams sought a vi­tal vic­tory.

But Phoenix grabbed a point de­spite the Wan­der­ers hav­ing 13 shots to seven, a missed Di­mas penalty and a 2-0 lead be­fore the hour.

A 60th-minute penalty to Gui Fin­kler was fol­lowed by a con­tro­ver­sial header for Roy Kr­ishna, who ben­e­fited from a clear hand­ball.
