An equaliser is a term used in association football and ice hockey, sometimes in baseball to describe a goal or run scored by one particular team that ties the game.
For example, if Team A is winning 1-0 against Team B, but then Team B scores and makes the match 1-1, then that goal would be deemed an equaliser.
It is a well recognised term and quite often used during commentary.
