Rookie Danny Deakin Scores Equalizing Penalty Kick in Stoppage Time to Draw with Tampa Bay

It looked like an early goal off the assist of former Chelsea player Joe Cole would seal it for Tampa Bay, as the United Soccer League Lions managed only futile scoring efforts. But in the seven minutes of stoppage time, rookie midfielder Danny Deakin, who subbed into the game in the 82nd minute, scored an equalizing penalty kick to salvage a draw with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

In his second game back for OCB, midfielder Richie Laryea drew the foul to give Deakin the chance. It was his fourth foul drawn that evening.
