9-man Melbourne draws with Brisbane in A-League

Archie Thompson scored twice as the nine-man Melbourne Victory drew 2-2 with Brisbane in the fifth round of Australian football's A-League, though first-place Brisbane extended its unbeaten run to 33 games.
Melbourne goalkeeper Ante Covic was sent off and conceded a penalty in the opening minute and the Victory were left with nine men when defender Matthew Foschini was shown a red card after 36 minutes.
By then the scoring was complete: Thompson scored in the 10th and 22nd minutes, first equalizing after Henrique's spot kick, then giving the Victory the lead before Thomas Broich scored for Brisbane from a free kick.
