London Tigers slipped off the top of the table after a determined Colney Heath kept the Maida Vale side at bay for 51 minutes.
Just when Tigers' hearts were starting to beat faster at the thought of only their second defeat of the season, Aziz Khoshimov's corner was met by captain Tarik Ellekhlifi, who fired back through a ruck of players, and gleefully watched the ball pinball off a number of bodies before crossing the line.
Tigers had made life difficult for themselves when a rare slip by Adil Salih after 14 minutes let in Richie Howard to put Colney ahead.
Orange shirts then lined up to put their side back into the game with Marco Tagbajumi, Edson Cata, Renars Zarchenko, and leading scorer Henry Emenike, all failing to hit the target.
After Ellekhlifi levelled, Colney rarely got out of their own half, and it was a surprise to Tigers keeper Michael Power-Simpson when he was called on to race out and clear the one dangerous through ball of the second 45 minutes.
At the other end, the Colney goal led a charmed life, but the loss of two points sees Tigers back to third spot.
