Young Boys 2-2 Lausanne Sport

Young Boys showed once again that they have had trouble holding onto leads this season as they allowed the equalizer deep in stoppage time to only come away with a point against Lausanne Sport at Stadion Wankdorf.

Jordan Pefok had a good outing for Young Boys as he completed 68 percent of his passes and won five duels along with taking three shots.

The hosts found themselves behind just five minutes into the first half when Zeki Amdouni ran onto a pass from Adrien Trebel and fired his shot past goalkeeper David von Ballmoos.

The rest of the half saw both sides squander chances as the game remained tight going into the break.

Things took a turn for Young Boys in the 47th minute when the referee pointed to the spot for a penalty. Lausanne’s Maxime Poundje was the guilty party as he brought down Elia Meschack in the area.

Pefok stepped up and converted the spot-kick to extend his goal-scoring lead to 18 in the league.

The American striker had an excellent chance to score his second on the day in the 56th minute when Lewin Blum supplied a cross from the right, but his headed attempt went wide of the goal.

The hosts took over the game and finally took the lead in the 80th minute when Cheikh Niasse fired a shot from the edge of the area that beat Lausanne goalkeeper Thomas Castella.

Three points should have been in the bag for Young Boys, but could only blame themselves for allowing the visitors to score the equalizer in the 94th minute. Brahima Ouattara found himself in the right place to put away the rebound from a free kick.

Young Boys remains in third place in the standings with 47 points, just hanging on to a Europa Conference League spot.
