Stoke leaves it late to draw 3-3 with Southampton
STOKE, England (AP) Cameron Jerome's 90th-minute volley rescued a point for Stoke in a 3-3 draw with Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Having just had a goal ruled out for offside, Jerome's long-range shot struck the underside of the bar and crashed into the net, sending the crowd at Brittania Stadium wild.
Southampton led 1-0 and 3-1 after strikes from Ricki Lambert, Jay Rodriguez and an own goal by Andy Wilkinson. But Kenwyne Jones and Matthew Upson scored for Stoke to set up Jerome's dramatic late response.
Steven Nzonzi was shown a straight red card in the 71st minute for a challenge on Jack Cork.
Stoke stayed in eighth place in the standings with 29 points, while Southampton dropped a place to 18th spot in the relegation zone.
