Brighton rally to hold Stoke
BRIGHTON, England (AP):
Brighton fought back twice to draw with Stoke 2-2 at home in the Premier League yesterday, extending their unbeaten run to five matches on an impressive return to England's top flight.
Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo earned the promoted team a point with a 60th-minute goal, scoring at the second attempt after his initial cutback was cleared.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting earned the opening goal, Pascal Gross steered in his third goal of the season to bring Brighton level, and Kurt Zouma put Stoke back in front with a header in first-half injury time.
Brighton stayed in ninth place, three points ahead of 15th-place Stoke after 12 games.
