Jonathan Behe struck a late brace as Warriors FC shared the spoils in a thrilling 3-3 draw with Home United FC at the Bishan Stadium on Saturday.
Mirko Grabovac’s men had opened the scoring through Ho Wai Loon’s solo goal inside two minutes, but Home would strike back through Song Ui-young and Faizal Roslan.
Behe then levelled matters and made it 2-2 on 82 minutes, before Song made no mistake from the spot with five minutes remaining to regain the lead for the hosts.
There was however time for late drama deep into stoppage time when Behe escaped the attention of his marker to nod home Ho’s left-wing cross and salvage a valuable point for Warriors.
“We must be happy with this result, but my players must start learning and be more confident so that we can close the gap with the other teams,” Grabovac said after the game.

He added: “We have a few players out injured and I hope they return for the next game. If we have all our players fit, I’m sure we can pose problems for anyone.”
