Perth stays top after 3-3 draw with Melbourne Victory in A-League


SYDNEY — Perth stayed four points clear at the top of Australian football's A-League after a 3-3 draw on Sunday with the third-place Melbourne Victory.

Rostyn Griffiths scored in the 79th minute and Jamie Maclaren a minute from full time as Perth came from 3-1 down in the 57th to grab a point. Perth had led 1-0 with a goal by Fahid Ben Khalfallah in the 18th before Melbourne went ahead with goals by Andy Keogh, Besart Berisha and Kosta Barbarouses.

The match continued the high-scoring trend of the league's 15th round in which 19 goals have been scored in three games after Adelaide's 7-0 win over Newcastle and Sydney FC's 5-1 win over Central Coast.
