DRAW WITH GREEK RIVALS SOUTH MELBOURNE
Macedonian Australian football club, Preston Lions have extended their unbeaten streak to 10 matches after an entertaining three-all draw with rival South Melbourne (Greek based) in round twelve of the Foxtel Cup at Bob Jane Stadium.
Zoran Petrevski, Tony Sterjovski and Marinos Gasparis were all on target for the visitors as Goran Lozanovski's men made the most of some patchy goalkeeping.
It was Preston who had the initiative early on and were ahead after only seven minutes.
South Melbourne worked their way back into the game as Nick Curtis' strike from outside the area found its way into the back of the Preston net after only 15 minutes. Preston took the lead for the second time in the match in the 67th minute.
Preston thought they had the game in the 71st minute as Marionos Gasparis struck the ball from almost the touchline and bent the ball into Tosic's back post to give the Lions a grip on all three points. Billy Natsoulis handed South Melbourne a lifeline with ten minutes remaining. South Melbourne continued to press and their hard work was rewarded as once again Natsoulis found the back of the net to complete a remarkable comeback and level the scores at three a piece after 86 minutes.
Preston Lions are currently on fourth place with 20 points, next week they will face Essendon Royals, who hold the third place of the table.
MD: Again unbeaten, too bad they didn't win though, but better luck next time at home against Essendon!
