The teams then both started to push for the breakthrough they were after. Harleston eventually scored when David Ling played a ball into the path of Colin Wheelhouse who drew a defender before playing the ball across to Tristan Baynes to slot home from close range. The teams went in at half time with the scores at 2-1.
The second half started similarly to the first, with possession by both teams given away cheaply. Blueharts were twice reduced to ten men however this seemed to spur them on more and, once they were back to eleven players, they equalised with a good deflection at the near post.
With time running out Harleston pushed forward in search of the vital winner. On the stroke of full time Harleston won a short corner which was put on a foot and, with the following corner, Harleston won a penalty stroke. The stroke was not converted though and the game finished with a draw.
