Drama in St. Gallen as Pelister fight back
Thursday, 23 August 2001
There was high drama in Switzerland as Macedonian side FK Pelister came close to pulling off an amazing comeback against home side FC St. Gallen in the UEFA Cup qualifying round.
St. Gallen already had the luxury of a 2-0 aggregate lead going into the match, and they increased their advantage to 4-0 shortly after half-time.
Over and out
The Swiss side seemed to have killed the tie after their double strike. First, Romanian international striker Ionel Gane latched onto a long kick from Olivier Stöckli to slide the ball home.
Then, four minutes later, Gane made it two, flicking home an inch-perfect cross from Ivan Dal Santo. At this point, the tie seemed over. However, St. Gallen inexplicably went to sleep, and allowed the visitors back into the tie.
Dal Santo put through his own goal in the 65th minute, then striker Cvete Deliovski was left unmarked by the home defence to make it 2-2. With the score at 4-2 on aggregate, Pelister seemed invigorated by the glimmer of hope left to them in the tie.
In with a chance
With 15 minutes remaining, defender Jordanco Stojmenovski scored from an impossible angle and suddenly Pelister needed just one more goal to go through.
In injury-time, substitute Sasa Pesic drew a great save out of Stöckli to preserve St.Gallen's lead and Pelister were left disappointed with the final score locked a t 3-2 to Pelister after a thrilling encounter. Despite their elimination, the home crowd gave the Macedonians a standing ovation.
