BAT­TLING Chal­font Wasps took a point off ti­tle-chas­ing Head­ing­ton Am­a­teurs on Satur­day – but it could have been more.

The Hellenic Divi­sion One East clash was score­less for an hour, with standin Wasps keeper Steve Nott-Ma­caire keep­ing the vis­i­tors at bay with an ex­cel­lent point-blank save with his feet.

The game kicked into life just af­ter the hour, Wasps scor­ing when Brad Holt’s long throw was flicked on by Josh Urquhart and Michael Green re­acted quick­est in the six-yard box to nod home.

But Head­ing­ton were level within sec­onds, a long ball for­ward from the kick-off which the breeze took over Wasps’ de­fend­ers for Luke Cuff to slot home. That did Wasps’ neigh­bours, and league lead­ers, Penn & Tylers Green a favour, and Wasps could do them an­other one on Satur­day when they visit ti­tlechas­ing Woodley United.
