Result: Melbourne Heart pay penalty in Central Coast Mariners draw

Marcos Flores scores two penalties in the final 19 minutes to help Central Coast Mariners come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw at Melbourne Heart.

Marcos Flores scored two penalties in the final 19 minutes to help Central Coast Mariners come from behind to earn a draw at Melbourne Heart on Saturday.

David Williams had earlier struck twice in six second-half minutes to put Melbourne seemingly in control.

The deadlock was broken by Williams on 54 minutes, as he finished well one-on-one after being set up by Golgol Mebrahtu.

Williams doubled his tally on the hour, smashing a right-footed shot high into the net from close range.

The Mariners were given a route back into the match when Patrick Kisnorbo was penalised for pushing in the penalty area as both sets of players jostled for position at a corner kick.

Flores made no mistake from the spot, and the Argentinean was soon presented with another chance from 12 yards.

This time, Patrick Gerhart was the guilty party with a clear handball and, once again, Flores found the net with minimal fuss.

Williams looked poised to become the first player to score a hat-trick for Heart when he got on the end of Iain Ramsay's low cross late on. However, he was spectacularly denied by a superb point-black save from Justin Pasfield.
