Cash-strapped Hearts rescues draw at Inverness


GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -Financially-troubled Hearts snatched a 1-1 draw at Inverness in the Scottish Premier League on Saturday after Marius Zaliukas scored a 90th minute penalty kick.

The captain's strike after Callum Paterson was fouled in the area canceled out Owain Tudur Jones' fierce 30-yard opener in the 19th minute for Inverness.

Hearts warned that this might have been its last away match.

The Edinburgh club announced earlier this week it could be forced out of business by the end of the month because of an unpaid tax bill of around $720,000.

Hearts has been hit with a "winding-up order" after action was taken by the tax authority at an Edinburgh court.

Hearts is three places off the bottom of the 12-team standings, while Inverness is third.
