THE spoils were shared between Rivermoor landlords Highmoor Ibis and tenants Woodley United as they drew 2-2 in their Premier Division clash on Saturday.

Hosts Highmoor had a shot in the opening minute, only for Aaron De Rama’s effort to be saved by goalkeeper Alex Reed.

And it was the Kestrels who took a 13th-minute lead when Haydon Richardson got on the end of a fine through ball from Toby Briggs and beat Aaron Watkins with a low shot into the right-hand corner.

Richardson almost added another and teammate Danny Horscroft had a shot deflected, but midway through the half the scores were level when Joe Joslyn set-up Kia Alleyene who finished well.

Woodley full back Jordan Goddard forced a save from Watkins, diving to his left, and the sides went into the break locked at 1-1.

Highmoor started the half well and after Ricardo Catlyn blazed over, they took a 47th-minute lead when Imani Likita netted from the spot after Reed had brought down Joslyn.

Richardson had a chance to level before Joslyn and Alleyne both missed to the right for the hosts, and they were made to pay five minutes from time when Horscroft’s free-kick nestled in the bottom right-hand corner.

Ibis were reduced to 10 men in injury-time when Austin Best was shown a second yellow for a foul on the left wing, but Highmoor held on for a point.

Second-bottom Highmoor Ibis travel to Longlevens on Saturday (3pm).

  • WOODLEY United picked up a second Premier Division point in three days as they drew 1-1 with ABingdon United at Rivermoor on Monday night.
