JOHN KRETLOW - Tuesday, September 18, 2012
In a dramatic Monday night Premier League matchup, Tim Howard started and went the distance in Everton's controversial draw with Newcastle United on Monday night.
David Moyes and company felt they should have left Monday night's game with a win, but two goals, one by Marouane Fellaini and the other by Victor Anichebe, were ruled out.
The Toffees opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Leighton Baines knocked home a clever Steven Pienaar pass, but Demba Ba's 49th minute strike after a Yohan Cabaye pass equalized the game.
In the 88th minute Anichebe found the back of the net from a strike inside the box, only to see Ba level the game in the dying moments when he knocked in a Shola Ameobi pass.
The American ‘keeper was credited with one save in the game.
Everton now finds themselves in 7th place in the standings and will try and improve on that as they take on Swansea City next weekend.
