A LATE strike by George Slefendorfas ensured FC Bendigo would take at least a point from Sunday's National Premier League Victoria division one clash with Richmond.
Slefendorfas and FC Bendigo coach Steve Martin were on target as they raced to a two-nil lead on Richmond's turf at Kevin Bartlett Reserve.
In the space of eight minutes the Tigers scored a hat-trick of goals.
After a flurry of goals in the opening 45 minutes, defences were on top in the second.
Slefendorfas pounced on the ball a metre from the line to score the equaliser in the 85th minute.
