Published January 17th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

The last placed Sadous nearly humiliated the Saudi soccer league leader but buckled in the game's final minutes allowing Ahli to even the score. 

Al-Hayat newspaper reports that the Sadous took a 2-0 lead during the 12th round of the national league championship at the Prince Faisal Bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh. The goals were scored by Abdul-Aziz Al-Deaeilej (19) and Mossa Al-Sofyani (56). But it was too good to be true, as Ahli's Colombian player, Alcato came back to redeem his team scoring two goals in the 82nd and 87th minutes, evening the score.
