Peter Crouch scores in final minutes as Stoke rescues draw at Newcastle

NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Substitute Peter Crouch headed in a 90th-minute equalizer for Stoke in a 1-1 draw at Newcastle in a Premier League match between two mid-table teams on Sunday.

Stoke threw on the former England striker after Jack Colback gave Newcastle the lead in the 74th, driving home a shot from the edge of the area from Moussa Sissoko's lay-off.

Only seconds were remaining in normal time when United States international Geoff Cameron sent in a deep cross from the right wing, which Crouch met with a looping header.


The result ended a run of three straight wins for Stoke, although Crouch's late intervention keeps the team in 10th place — two points and a place ahead of Newcastle.
