Hi I'm reading a sport article and saw this:
Kim Young-gwon opened the scoring for South Korea against Germany in added time.
I don't know why they used definite article because to me, it can be just "a scoring" or just no article at all "opened scoring". So I thought of the reason and guessed that the reader is already informed of this scoring in the article's beginning and the line is for the picture, making it an already-known fact for the reader so it's natural to use definite article "the" Is my guess right?
And one more question: Why using "in added time" instead of "in an added time" or "in the added time"? From what I know, I think it should be in "an" added time since it's not specified nor introduced to the reader about how much time was given.
