Late drama meant Uni were forced to share the spoils after conceding two late headed goals, as Fremantle fought back from two goals down to salvage a point at The Mac in Round 12.

In what was an extremely entertaining end-to-end encounter, all four goals were scored in the final 15 minutes of the match.

UWA were unable to hold on to their deserved lead following goals to the recently returned Mordecai Junior and an own goal from Fremantle defender Josh Wade from Joe Haydon's dangerous cross into the area.

Mordecai, who re-signed with the club earlier in the week, twisted and turned on the edge of the area after beating his marker and coolly slotted home inside the area with a fine left-footed strike to open the scoring with 77 minutes played.

Uni pushed to kill the game off and were able to double their lead just moments later with Haydon's teasing ball into the area from the left-wing forcing the City defender into deflecting into his own net to make it 2-0.

Despite a number of chances following the second goal, UWA were unable to see out the game with City striker Callum Roberts and Wade Farmer hitting the score-sheet very late on for the visitors with Alec James rising highest on both occasions to provide the assists.

It was a bitterly disappointing result to swallow after such a spirited performance for Michael Janssen's side, but the boys will take confidence from their performance as the point keeps them in touch with the top four.

In other results, the Reserves fell to a 2-1 loss, while our league leading 18's settled for a point in what was another enthralling encounter.
