Simon Terodde missed an injury-time penalty but scored the rebound as VfL Bochum 1848 rescued a 2-2 draw in a thrilling game against DSC Arminia Bielefeld on Sunday.
Terodde, who went into the game having netted 13 times in the league this term, opened the scoring on the half-hour mark when he finished a flowing move by slotting home from Marco Terrazzino's pass. Bielefeld offered little in the way of an attacking threat in the first period, but they were level three minutes after the restart when David Ulm converted from the spot after Jannik Haberer handled in the box.
Bochum went back on the offensive after the leveller, but they were undone on the break when Christopher Nöthe’s scrappy finish put the visitors in front. Staring down the barrel of a third home loss of the season, Gertjan Verbeek’s men threw the kitchen sink at the opposition, and were given a way back deep into injury time when the referee awarded them a spot-kick. Terodde’s attempt was saved but he reacted quickest to fire home the rebound, salvaging his team a point and consigning Arminia to a 14th draw of the season.
