City & Mariners share Craig Foster Cup

A goal from Central Coast's Senegalese import Malick Mane ensured the Mariners and Melbourne City shared the Craig Foster Cup in Lismore on Sunday.

After a scoreless first-half it was City who broke the dead-lock ten minutes in to the second period. 

A training ground set piece saw Aaron Mooy set up defender Rob Wielaert at the back post. 

But the lead did not last long, with Central Coast drawing level just a minute later. 

Wielaert went from scoring at one end to giving away a spot-kick at the other after bringing down Anthony Caceres. 

Malick Mane took the penalty and hit it straight down the middle to level the scores.
