A POINT EACH

Binfield led early on but needed a Josh Howell free kick to take a point...

Jos Millar's first goal of the season put the Moles into a 24th minute lead, with a fine solo effort after the former Binfield striker twisted and turned his way in from the left and hit a fine shot across Arron Watkins into the far corner.

But after Grant Kemp had come close to making it 2-0 when heading firmly at Watkins, Mitchell Parker ran onto Watkins' long clearance and beat Liam Vaughan with a calm sidefoot finish. Worse was to come for the Moles as a right wing cross came back off the far post, for Trevor Mutero to blast home from close range and send Highmoor Ibis into the break 2-1 up, having been behind.

The visitors had the better of the 2nd half exchanges, with Mitchell Parker a constant threat - and a find left foot curling effort went just past the far post, with Vaughan beaten. Devontae Romeo's strong direct running almost brought a goal with 16 minutes left, but Joe Gritt stuck well to his task to block Romeo's shot, before Gary Smith and Harry Lee managed to clear the danger.

With time starting to run out, Millar ran onto Josh Howell's pass over the top and when Nick Grovenor was adjudged to have fouled Millar just outside the area, referee Simmons showed Grovenor red as the last man, leaving Highmoor down to ten men for the final 15 minutes. Howell gave the Moles hope of an unlikely 3 points, when, for the second Saturday running, the Moles winger found the net with a 25 yard free kick, which Watkins got a hand to but couldn't keep out.

But the Moles were unable to find a late goal, while Vaughan had to be alert at his near post to keep out a smart Parker shot. In added time, the visitors saw two more players shown red, presumably for comments made to the referee as the match ended with a point a piece
