South Hobart drew 1-1 with Oakleigh Cannons at North Melbourne this evening.

After a goalless opening half, South Hobart took the lead in the 55th minute with a well-worked goal.

A cross by David Abbott was fired at goal by Igor, and when the goalkeeper could only parry, Shae Hickey netted to give the Tasmanians a deserved lead.

Oakleigh equalised near the end through a penalty, awarded for a handball by Liam Scott.

"It was a good display by our team," said South Hobart coach, Ken Morton.

"The pitch was a bit bumpy but the temperature had dropped by game time and so conditions weren't too bad.

"Oakleigh probably had the better of the first half, but we came back well in the second and probably should have won as it was a 'home' penalty.

"Liam tried to clear and the ball bounced up and struck his hand. It wasn't deliberate.

"Now we've got to regroup for tomorrow's game against South Melbourne."
