Combined Counties League Division One Bedfont and Feltham 3 Croydon Athletic 3 AFC Croydon Athletic won a hard fought point at promotion rivals Bedfont and Feltham after coming back from two goals down. The game started badly when after eight minutes Bedfont leading scorer Mickey Burton fired into the top corner to put the hosts in the lead, 1-0. Things went from bad to worse on 12 minutes when Kentebe conceded a penalty which Javonne Molloy converted. The Rams reduced the arrears in the 18th minute when Danny Penfold got free on the left and his perfect cross was headed home by Joe Loyza. Both sides had chances but failed to take them and so at half-time it was 2-1. The Rams started the second half brightly but could not find the equaliser until Edmund Walker crossed from the right and Loyza fired home to make it 2-2 on 62 minutes. Loyza was then immediately replaced by Louis Blake due to injury. Blake's first telling contribution was to set up Kai Bichard to fire the Rams 3-2 ahead on 70 minutes. On 76 minutes the home side drew level when Don Murray found space on the left and fired home. Both sides looked for a winner but there was no further scoring and it was a point a piece, which proved to be a fair result. The Rams now face two home games with Eversley and California this Saturday and Dorking on December 21.
