Southern United pulled off a remarkable comeback to begin its weekend on the futsal court.
The side scored three goals in the final three minutes to beat the Waikato Rapids 4-3 in the Super League’s final weekend in Auckland.
Carlos Hermann scored the last two of those, including slotting the match-winner from a Mike Sannum pass with just 12sec to play.
It was a brilliant comeback after trailing 3-1 for much of the game against the team that entered the weekend atop the table.
Waikato led 2-0 early, before Yun Sung Chang pegged one back for Southern.
The Rapids added a third before halftime, though, and kept Southern quiet for most of the second half.
However, Tim O’Farrell struck with 2min 46sec left.
A minute later, Adam Hewson intercepted a pass and put
Hermann in to equalise with 1min 35sec to play.
That tied the score at 3-3, allowing Hermann to score his match-winner.
The team played Bay of Plenty Surge last night.
Today, it faces Auckland and the Northern Comets.
The semifinals and final are tomorrow, if Southern makes it that far.
