Adrian King's 79th minute goal earned Boys' Town a 1-1 draw with Rivoli United in their Red Stripe Premier League game at Barbican play field yesterday.

Corey Burke had earlier fired the visitors ahead in the 51st minute with his league leading 11th goal of the season. However, minutes later, he wasted a great opportunity to add to his tally when he failed to convert a penalty.

Yesterday's point lifted Boys' Town one place to seventh and Rivoli stayed tenth with 14 points after yesterday's early match.

King was disappointed that Boys' Town did not go on to bag all three points after his equaliser.

"We were a bit disappointing in the first-half and squandered a number of good chances," he said.

The former Bridgeport High Manning Cup player has become a fan favourite since joining the 'Red Brigade' this season and although he believes he should have scored more he is satisfied with his contribution.

"I feel pleased within myself, I just want to continue the hard work so I can stand out in games," King said. He has promised to improve on his accuracy in front of goal to pull Boys' Town out of the bottom half of the table.

"We are not pleased with the position that we are in. We should have been up more, but we need to score more," he added.

Boys' Town were the better team in the first-half but wasted their chances. Six minutes into the second-half they were made to pay when Burke dribbled fired a low shot past goalkeeper Kirk Porter.

With just over ten minutes to go King broke away and calmly slotted past Marlon Henry for the equaliser.
