Futsal: Bettson brothers share the glory

Futsal: Bettson brothers share the glory

There was a dramatic late rescue mission at the weekend with both Bettson brothers actually on target for York City Futsal in their 2-2 draw with Manchester at the YorkSport Arena.

The Minstermen appeared set for a second consecutive defeat after goals from Jordan Edge and Jamie Vinas had seen their visitors well in charge with just three minutes remaining.

However, with York advancing fly keeper Vladimir De Paula to create a further attacking option during the closing exchanges, younger brother Jamie Bettson (8) lashed in a superb reply from wide on the right.

And then with just 2.5 seconds of the game remaining, Brazilian goalkeeper De Paula exchanged passes with skipper Fabinho Almeida before his firm drive was deflected into the net by England international Robbie Bettson (10).
