Jones has assist but Darmstadt falls 2-1 to Duisburg

T&T footballer Joevin Jones was on the losing end in the second league of the Bundesliga, but he did offer an assist in his club's only goal of the match.

Playing against MSV Duisburg, Ahmet Engin put the visitors ahead in the 17th minute with a powerful and well-placed shot just inside the 18-yard box.

However, eight minutes from the half, Darmstadt was on the attack. A cross from the right side from Kevin Großkreutz was carefully placed back from the head of Jones onto the feet of the oncoming Ji Dong-Won, who carefully placed in the equaliser.

The game went the distance, but five minutes from time, Stanislav Iljutcenko won a scrap near the goal line to push the ball in the back of the net after a good save from the Darnstadt goalkeeper. It ended 2-1 to Duisburg.

Meanwhile, across in the Netherlands, Levi Garcia came on as a 70th minute substitute for his club Excelsior in a 2-2 draw with FC Utretch.
