DIVISION ONE NORTH
Chatham Town 1 Northwood 1
EUGENE Ofori rescued a point for the Northwood at in-form Chatham Town on Saturday.
A good cross from sub Kyle Matthews found Ofori, who planted a downward header neatly between defender and goalkeeper for his fifth goal in four games.
Lee Barnett had the best effort of the first-half for the hosts on 20 minutes with a long-range effort that caught Woods keeper Mitch Swain off his line, but his shot bounced off the crossbar to safety.
At the other end, Ofori flicked a Rob Ursell corner wide and then Gary Burrell flashed an effort the wrong side of the post.
John Christian fired over from 20 yards and then an Ursell free-kick curled in neatly towards Hewitt only for Platten to just get a fist to the ball to divert it for a corner after the interval.
Just four minutes later, Chatham grabbed the lead against the run of play as Justin Ascheri's long throw was helped on by Richard Avery and substitute Byron Walker stole in to fire the ball into the roof of the net.
The visitors rallied, Ofori powered a header which James Platten was forced to tip over.
They wererewarded for their pressure six minutes from time when Ofori bagged the equaliser.
The Woods went for the winner. A last-minute throw from Ryan Tackley almost picked out Brad Hewitt but Platten took it off his head and then John Christian hit a final shot straight at the keeper.
Woods were due to host Hillingdon Borough last night.
Hillingdon Borough 0 Maldon Town 2
BASEMENT boys Hillingdon slumped to a disappointing home defeat to Maldon Town on Saturday.
Nav Arain had already had a free header sail over the bar, before Joel Barnett cut inside and sent a low shot past keeper Ben Harris after just two minutes.
Although Hillingdon rallied, their shots either went straight at the keeper or flew high and wide.
Maldon should have increased their lead just before half-time when Nikki Love somehow failed to find the unguarded net from six yards out.
At the start of the second half, Hillingdon conceded a needless penalty when David Pugh tugged back a forward.
Barnett stepped up and shot down the middle to convert to put the visitors two goals to the good.
From then on Hillingdon did most of the pressing but all too often lacked the final ball or the telling pass to make life difficult for the visiting defence.
Their best efforts - all from long range - were either blocked or off target.
