Two goals from Fondy, late equalizer from Polak give Louisville City 3-3 tie at Saint Louis
ST. LOUIS (WDRB) — There are ties. And there are escapes. The Louisville City Football Club earned one of those ties you can feel good about Sunday night against the Saint Louis Football Club.
Louisville trailed 2-1 about 62 minutes into the match when lightning sent both teams to the sidelines for just over an hour. When they returned, something sent a charge into the offenses.
With just 15 minutes left in regulation, Matt Fondy found a loose ball inside the box and sent it into the back of the net to tie the match at 2-2. It was his second goal of the game, fifth of the season and fourth in the past two matches.
But Louisville would need more. Saint Louis answered just two minutes later when its Mike Ambursley had a one-on-one with the with Scott Goodwin, who fouled him just inside the penalty area to set up a Bryan Gaul kick for the go-ahead goal.
Louisville, playing from behind for the third time, responded yet again, this time with a Nate Polak goal just moments after Saint Louis had taken the lead.
That's where the match ended.
