Eastcote 2 Ramgarhia 2
After the previous week's goal fest it was back to the same old story as Eastcote failed to make the most of early promise and ultimately suffered a disappointing result at home to Ramgarhia.
A strong start saw Adam Mulhol-land open the scoring with a trademark drag flick, his 10th of the season from a short corner, and Alex Stobbart slotted home from open play to put the Boars 2-0 up.
David Cooper had a glorious chance to make it 3-0 but somehow contrived to miss from close range and from then on the old demons resurfaced.
The Southall-based visitors pulled one back before half-time and emerged from the break to put the Eastcote defence under pressure and more indiscipline led to the Boars conceding an equaliser with 20 minutes to go.
Paddy Ashton won a free hit yet managed to get himself yellow carded.
There were plenty of opportunities in the closing moments but the forwards could not find the net and at the other end goalkeeper Mark Welch was called on to make some good stops to prevent defeat.
Eastcote remained third in the Middlesex, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Regional League but they are now eight points behind leaders Milton Keynes.

Claire Devereaux and Lucy Todd found the net as Eastcote lost a training match 3-2 to neighbours Harrow.
Eastcote started with only 10 play-ers and at times further injuries meant they played spells with only nine so to lose by only one goal to a side from the league above was no disgrace.
The Twos maintained their winning form with a 2-1 win at Winchmore Hill, the Threes kept another clean sheet with a convincing 5-0 win against Sunbury II, the Fours beat Southgate V 2-1 and the Fives drew 2-2 with West Hampstead VI.
