MANILA--Just when United Clark thought it will walk away with the win, a crucial free kick from Beijing forced a 1-1 draw in their AFC Champions League match at the Milliy Stadium in Tashkent late Saturday night.

Stephan Schrock struck first for United Clark in the 28th minute with a long range shot from a tough angle at the left side of the goal.

Despite seemingly the favorite to win with the opposition bringing in most of its reserves, United Clark could not close out Beijing.

The club from the Chinese capital made the Angeles-based team pay in the 73rd minute when Liang Shaowen converted on a free kick to eventually force the stalemate.

United Clark still had some chances in the endgame, but the club could not clinch the win in the end.

The closest was an attempt from Mark Hartmann just before added time that only hit the top post.
