LEADERS Barnham started the game in complete control, and pinned Lavant down.

Slowly Lavant came into the game and took a surprise lead with only11 minutes gone. Alan Sheppard’s shot was blocked and the loose ball fell to Robby Clackett who slotted the ball home.

On 26 minutes Clackett’s strike forced a finger-tip save.

In the second half Ben Thomas chased down a loose ball in midfield and played an inch-perfect pass through the Barnham defence to Clackett who made no mistake.

Barnham responded with a well taken goal, and with 35 minutes gone of the second half they broke down the left and scored again to draw level.
