Last minute heartbreaker

Portimão’s latest outing at Freamunde very nearly ended in success.

Undaunted by a fifth-minute Horacio strike, the Algarveans responded strongly with Sergio Organista and Simi finding the back of the net only moments later to grab a 2-1 lead.

Subsequently controlling the game, manager Carlos Mozer’s well drilled team returned for the second half and did well to compensate for the 55th minute dismissal of Ben Traore until deep into injury time when veteran striker Bock restored parity with virtually the last kick of the afternoon.

The result leaves Portimão, who next face Oliveirense on Wednesday afternoon, in joint last place, although a mere ten points cover the entire league table.
