Soccer-Liverpool left deflated as balloon scores for Sunderland
LONDON Oct 17 (Reuters) - Sunderland took the lead against Liverpool on Saturday thanks to an assist from a stray balloon.
Andy Reid crossed for Darren Bent and the in-form striker shot it goalwards, where it cannoned off the balloon and beyond goalkeeper Pepe Reina.
Liverpool, without injured Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres for the Premier League match at the Stadium of Light, protested to the referee but the goal stood.
