CHRIS Milward scored a late equaliser to secure a draw for Saundersfoot Sports at home to Merlins Bridge.
The Sports led 2-0 at half time and then found themselves 3-2 behind before Milward drilled in a shot from 15 yards in the 86th minute.
Two minutes before the break and Jason Bridges scored from a direct free kick 25 yards out.
A minute later and the same player blazed a penalty opportunity over the crossbar. But Rhys Hewson bagged a second goal from the edge of the area on the stroke of the interval.
Wizards striker Stephen McNabney got his side back in the game after scoring goals in the 53rd and 59th minutes. His first he cheekily flicked the ball over advancing keeper Ben Evans, the second, drilling into the net from seven yards. In the 78th minute McNabney fluffed his chance of scoring a hat-trick, striking a penalty effort against the foot of the post.
But the Wizards took the lead in the 84th minute when Nathan Greene pounced, but two minutes later Milward struck to earn his side a deserved point.
