Bournemouth, Wolves trade penalties in 1-1 draw
BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) — Bournemouth and Wolverhampton Wanderers drew 1-1 in the Premier League on Saturday in a game that featured three penalties, nine yellow cards and a break in play after the sprinklers went off on the pitch.
Raul Jimenez equalized for Wolves in the 83rd minute from the spot, canceling out a penalty by Joshua King in the 14th minute. King had a chance to win it for Bournemouth with another penalty, but fired his effort against the post.
The game then had to be halted for a couple of minutes in injury time when the water sprinklers popped out of the ground, soaking the players and the grass.
Bournemouth’s second penalty came after a foul on Ryan Fraser that replays showed happened outside the area, while King had gone down easily to earn the first spot kick after a challenge by Joao Moutinho. Wolves’ penalty came after Matt Doherty was adjudged to have been bundled over in the area.
Jordon Ibe nearly doubled Bournemouth’s lead in the 72nd but his fierce strike bounced off the crossbar.
Wolves are eighth in the league standings with 40 points, while Bournemouth is 10th on 34.
