Arrowheads responded well and pulled two goals back and went into half time 2-1 up.

Bassingbourn continued to press forward looking for the winner and Max Logan was brought down in the box after a surging run earn a penalty. Logan took the penalty himself but despite striking the ball well it cannoned off the cross bar and went over for a goal kick.

Arrowheads made one last counter attack from which they grabbed the winner to bring a disappointing end to a match in which the home side will feel they deserved something from.
