AACHEN, December 16 (Bundesliga) - Bastian Reinhardt did under-pressure coach Thomas Doll no favours as his last-minute own goal denied Hamburg three valuable points in an entertaining, rain-soaked 3-3 draw with Alemannia Aachen.
Besart Berisha opened the scoring and after Laurentiu-Aurelian Reghecampf equalised from the spot, Collin Benjamin and Danijel Ljuboja gave the visitors a two-goal lead.
But Cristian Fiel pulled a goal back for Aachen before Reinhardt's agonising mistake in the closing minutes.
The poor conditions made for a slow start, but after 18 minutes Boubacar Sanogo could have opened the scoring when he found himself clear inside the area, but lifted his shot over the bar.
Seven minutes later Aachen registered their first effort, Jan Schlaudraff setting up strike partner Marius Ebbers, whose shot was saved by Stefan Wachter.
The first half was largely uneventful, and seemed to have 0-0 written all over it until Hamburg took the lead in the 32nd minute.
Piotr Trochowski took a corner from the left, which defender Matthias Lehmann failed to clear, allowing Berisha to blast the ball home.
If the first half was quiet, the second was anything but, as four goals in 15 minutes saw the game fired into life.
Two minutes after the hour mark, Benjamin pulled down Alexander Klitzpera inside the area.
Reghecampf took the responsibility of drawing his side level and didn't let his team down, hammering the penalty straight down the middle.
Benjamin made up for his error five minutes later, meeting Mehdi Mahdavikia's right-wing cross with a well-taken header at the back post.
Ljuboja replaced goal-scorer Berisha in the 69th minute, and just seven minutes later seemed to have put the game to bed, as good work from Alexander Laas and Trochowski gave the Serbia striker possession, and he stroked the ball past Stephan Straub to make it 3-1.
But just a minute later Aachen were back in the game, Pinto crossing from the right and Fiel Knocking the ball in.
The hosts deserved an equaliser for their endeavours and got it with just two minutes to go thanks to Reinhardt's error, the unfortunate defender diverting Schlaudruff's cross into his own net.
