BUSAN, South Korea – During the midseason, it was Busan who came up with many late game heroics. Lately however, the tides have turned.
Busan I'Park stumbled to a two-all draw with 13th place Gwangju Sunday at the Gwangju World Cup Stadium, failing to protect their lead and giving up the equalizer in the waning seconds.
After falling behind 1-0 on a goal by Lee Seung-ki in the 60th minute, I'Park defender Yoon Dong-min netted the equalizer, tucking in a deflection past Park Ho-jin.
Yang Dong-hyun stuck five minutes later, to give I'Park the advantage and the three points, but Gwangju's persistence paid off in the dying seconds as Yoon Chong-hyun scored to end the game level at two, and the I'Park once again frustrated. They have now failed to win in their past four road games, losing three and drawing one.
The I'Park head home next week for a Sunday afternoon showdown versus ninth place Gyeongnam. The venue has changed for this game: it will be held at Gudok Stadium in Daeshin-dong. Kick-off time is 3 p.m.
