Drama at the death
With the opportunity to turn one point into three, the home side kept pushing and earned the perfect chance to complete a turnaround victory when Markanday knocked the ball past Bergstrom and fell easily under the keeper’s attempted challenge.
The referee had no choice but to point for a penalty and White stepped up confidently but Bergstrom kept his status as the night’s hero, diving low to his left to keep the ball out and keep a point for his side.
