Watford draws 1-1 at Bournemouth in Premier League
BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) Watford had both goalkeepers to thank for a point after Artur Boruc’s mistake and penalty save from Heurelho Gomes helped earn the visitors a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.
Boruc gifted Watford an equalizer when he gathered a routine back pass from Sylvain Distin in the 45th minute. As Boruc attempted to play it back to the defender, Odion Ighalo intercepted, skipped past Boruc and rolled the ball into an empty net for his fifth goal of the season.
Glenn Murray, who had headed Bournemouth into the lead in the 28th after connecting with a cross from Matt Ritchie, then had a chance to win from the penalty spot with seven minutes left. But Gomes dived to his left to palm out Murray’s spot kick.
Watford has 10 points in midtable with fellow promoted side Bournemouth on eight.
