Studley 2 Highgate Utd 2
AFTER two heavy league defeats, struggling Highgate were desperate for a win to lift them away from the three relegation places.
Goals in each half from DJ Pitt and Elroy Bennett in response to an early Studley goal seemed to set up the victory until old boy Scott Turner scored a late equaliser to deny the visitors a deserved three points.
The home side got off to the perfect start, smashing a free kick low into Shawn Edwards’ net.
Despite the setback, Gate went on to enjoy the majority of possession and levelled through Pitt.
Highgate’s captain Tom Reynolds then set up Bennett to put the visitors ahead.
But with 15 minutes to go, Gate were on the back foot and deep into injury time the ball was headed into their net.
On Saturday Highgate are at home to unbeaten league leaders Stratford Town (3.00pm) and on Tuesday evening Westfields are the visitors (7.45pm)
