Saint-Etienne gets late equalizer in 3-3 at home to Lens

PARIS (AP) -- Fourth-place Saint-Etienne failed to win for a fourth straight game in the French league and needed a late goal from Turkey striker Mevlut Erding to draw 3-3 against struggling Lens on Friday.

Midfielder Landry N'Guemo gave Saint-Etienne the lead early on and the home side appeared to be coasting when winger Yohan Mollo made it 2-0 in the 58th minute.

But Lens, which remains in 19th place, hit back as forward Yoann Touzghar scored twice and strike partner Pablo Chavarria made it 3-2 to the visitors after 77 minutes.

Erding, recently criticized by coach Christophe Galtier after a lackluster performance in a loss to Paris Saint-Germain, struck in the 83rd with his first goal since Aug. 17.

Monaco can move into fourth place if it wins at Guingamp on Sunday.
