FOXTON slipped to their second defeat in four matches after losing 3-2 at Somersham Town on Saturday.
The visitors started brightly but went behind after 20 minutes, following a mix-up between goalkeeper Jamie Chamberlain and defender Ed Ranner.
Andy Cambridge's men then fell further behind after Somersham were awarded a 35th minute penalty for handball.
Foxton trailed 2-0 at the break, but mounted a spirited second-half fightback.

Cambridge said: "To lose two soft goals against the run of play left us with a challenge in the second half, but the team responded well and deservedly got back level.
