MELBOURN ground out a decent point against Bishop's Stortford on Sunday.
For the second time in three weeks Panthers struggled to get 11 fit players available for what was to be their toughest test so far in Division 3.
After weathering the early storm Josh Hutton fired the Panthers into a 1-0 lead with an accurate right-footed shot into the corner.
The game flowed from end to end and Hutton could have made it 2-0 after a weak goal-kick fell kindly for him.

The game continued at a frantic pace and a counter-attack led to George Storey increasing Panthers lead on 13 minutes after going on a strong run down the right before firing over the Rangers 'keeper from a tight angle.
Unfortunately for Melbourn, Rangers had sufficient substitutes available to freshen things up and the pressure finaly told as Rangers got back into the game with a deserved goal on the 46 minute mark and it was no surprise when they grabbed the equaliser with five minutes remaining after the Melbourn defence failed to clear their lines.
