A sensational 96th-minute Luke DeVere equaliser has saved Matt McKays blushes to earn Brisbane a 1-1 draw against Melbourne Victory on the A-Leagues opening night.McKays dismissal after the hour mark had Victory on top, and Mitch Austin put them ahead seven minutes from time by lashing home a loose ball.Victory were set for three points on Friday night until a late set-piece was bundled home at the death, sparking frenzied celebrations from 15,805 at Suncorp Stadium.The goal was miraculous, with DeVere volleying over a stranded Lawrence Thomas while falling backwards.But in his first A-League start in 18 months after battling thigh and knee injuries, it was tough to begrudge DeVere his goal or the Roar their point.McKay received a yellow cards either side of halftime and was sent off in his 200th game.After receiving a first-half caution for swinging an arm at Fahid Ben Khalfallah, McKay earned his marching orders for tugging the Tunisian internationals shirt on 65 minutes.The skipper couldnt believe his fate, throwing his armband in referee Shaun Evans direction as his incensed coach John Aloisi remonstrated from the touchline.It allowed Victory to wrest back control of the match, which had failed to hit any great heights until then.The most interesting battle was that of the two Socceroos No.10s; A-League debutant Brett Holman and returning Victory midfielder James Troisi.Holman hit the ground running with a sparkling display, finding space and directing traffic in the Roars front third.Troisi was bright but unable to link up effectively with teammates who werent at the club when he left two seasons ago.But he did create the best chance of the first half from a wide free kick, which debutant defender Alan Baro headed over from close range.Holman spurned a similar chance from milestone man McKays cross on 33 minutes.A man down, Brisbane gave up the ascendancy but looked set for a point.That is, until Austin reacted quickest when Ben Khalfallahs set piece bobbled from an aerial contest.Given their last visit to Suncorp Stadium - when the Roar found two goals at the death in last years elimination final - Victory were wise to be watchful until the final whistle.But they were stung again, with substitute Leigh Broxham fouling Maclaren, allowing DeVere to capitalise on Tommy Oars set piece.After seeing his side receive six yellow cards among nine for the night, Aloisi lashed Evans performance.Ill make one comment about the referee in my opinion. He wasnt good tonight, he said.Even with 10 men were still pushing and pushing and I couldnt be happier for someone like Luke Devere.Despite the last-gasp goal, Victory boss Kevin Muscat quickly made his peace with the result.I thought we were very good value. We played against a very good team, he said.If you analyse the result, youd be disappointed ... Ill analyse the performance and I thought we were very good. Teemu Selanne Jersey . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. Hampus Lindholm Jersey . "I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Patrick Eaves Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Ryan Kesler Jersey . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4. CLEVELAND -- For months, theyve been ignored, overlooked and mostly dismissed.The Cleveland Indians werent supposed to be playing in October and yet here they are: AL Central champions with a chance to end a World Series drought approaching its 68th anniversary.While many baseball fans remain fixated on the Chicago Cubs, those lovable losers trying to rewrite baseball history, the Indians have quietly overcome injuries to put themselves in position to bring another championship to Cleveland, a city still giddy after LeBron James and the Cavaliers won an NBA title this summer.We dont mind if we have to play the underdog, said second baseman Jason Kipnis. We dont mind if we have to take people by surprise. We know what kind of team weve got here and the kind of organization we have here -- and were pretty happy with whats going on.The Indians have defined resiliency this season. They played all but 11 games without star outfielder Michael Brantley and didnt have starting catcher Yan Gomes for most of the year. Cleveland lost starters Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar down the stretch to injuries and wont have them in the postseason. But the Indians cleared the obstacles thrown at them, motivated by the guidance of manager Terry Francona.With unexpected contributions from players like Jose Ramirez, Mike Napoli and Rajai Davis, the continued rise of star shortstop Francisco Lindor and a lights-out bullpen, they grabbed the division lead in June, reeled off a 14-game winning streak and never looked back, dominating rival Detroit and dethroning the defending champion Kansas City Royals, who finished 13 1/2 games behind Cleveland.It didnt go according to plan, but when does it ever? And as they prepare to take on the Boston Red Sox in the best-of-five division series starting Thursday, the Indians, who have craved the spotlight for years, are again being given little chance to advance.Kipnis and his teammates have grown accustomed to a lack of respect nationally.Its Cleveland, he said. Its a smaller market and people tend to forget that. Its OK if were not the favorite. Weve been proving people wrong all year. We have plenty of people who believe in us.On Tuesday, the Indians arrived at Progressive Field and were greeted in their clubhouse by boxes filled with new cleats and some cold-weather gear. They wont need any layering in GGames 1 and 2 with temperatures expected to be in the 70s for the first pitch.ddddddddddddBut although theyve made it to October, the narrative has yet to change on the Indians, and thats just fine with them.We havent been a popular pick all year long, said the fun-loving Lindor, who plays with an infectious passion. Thats OK. We believe in each other.That confidence comes from Francona, who leads the Indians flock of faithful.From the outset of training camp, Francona, who guided the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years in 2004 and then added another three years later, has instilled confidence in his players. By using his entire 25-man roster -- and then some -- hes developed a group that values depth and understands it takes everyone doing their share.That was apparent when the Indians ripped off 14 wins in a row from June 17 to July 2. There was a different hero every game, and the stretch climaxed with a 19-inning victory in Toronto.Francona pulled out all the stops in that 2-1 win, even using Game 1 starter Trevor Bauer in relief for five shutout innings. The victory sapped the Indians, but the more-than-two-week winning streak also bonded them.Winning breeds confidence, Kipnis said. That kind of laid the foundation for the season and the team that we are today. It needs to be all hands on deck for us to win and well be good if we do that.The streak began as the Cavs were rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the finals to beat Golden State and give Cleveland its first major sports championship since 1964.On June 17, hours before the Cavs would win Game 7 on the road, fans in Progressive Field alternated chants of Lets Go Indians with Lets Go Cavs during Clevelands 3-2 win in 10 innings over the Chicago White Sox.Kipnis said the Indians fed off the citys energy.It gave positive vibes around the stadium and gave positive vibes to the fans, he said of the Cavs championship run. Everyone was in a better mood. The sun was shining. There was no longer that dark cloud over Cleveland. LeBron didnt throw any shutouts for us or hit any home runs, but at the same time, the Cavs winning it all it took that pressure away of bringing home the first title.A second one might not be that far away.
