BEN HOLT scored his 20th goal of the season as Steeple Morden were held to a draw at old rivals Harston, in this BIS League clash.
Despite having several players missing, Steeple started brightly with Max Carlton and Joe Morris pulling the strings.
However, despite neat football from the visitors, Harston took the lead when a forward turned in the box to smash home.

Steeple responded well with Roy Dunsford going close when his skilful run and cutback to Karl Parr was narrowly intercepted.
Morden got back on terms moments later, when Holt took advantage of a defensive mistake to lift the ball over the advancing keeper from 20 yards.

Where the first half encounter had been dominated by passing and clever movement, the second half turned into a scrappy affair.
Jamie Murphy and Morris caused a few problems, but the home defence closed down any attack quickly, although Ben Morris went close after he was set free by a intelligent flick from Holt.
In the dying minutes, Holt could have won the game, when a through ball put him through, only for him to lose his footing.
Steeple will entertain Hempstead United at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.
Steeple Morden Reserves 2 Haslingfield 6
DEPLETED Steeple Morden slipped to their third straight defeat, this time at the hands of a strong Haslingfield side, in their toughest game this season.
After a taking the lead early on, the home side began to struggle with the aerial threat of the opposition.
A Steve Little effort proved to be the lull before the storm, as Haslingfield turned round 4-1 up at the interval.
It was much the same in the second period as Morden failed to keep possession and test the visiting keeper.
Haslingfield soon added a further two goals before Steeple substitutes Paul Hutley and Jack Tidey combined to create an opening for Jason Clark, who calmly added a late consolation.
