The Black Dogs forfeited a 2-0 interval lead under the Maltings Meadow lights on Friday evening and in the end had to rely on a goal three minutes into added time to salvage a point.

All was going well in the first half, though the visitors showed why they had started the season brightly and had temporarily led the table. And the way they stormed back in the second half indicated they will be a match for most clubs in the division.

Early on Ryan Crisp and Tom Hunter were working well down the left, causing the Hindringham defence problems, while Ash Canham put a 25-yard free-kick into the keeper’s arms. The visitors had chances too and Josh Clark put an effort into the side netting. For Bungay Dom Mirner saw a dangerous cross cleared over the bar by a defender and John Riches and Craig Hunting also went close.

But on two occasions poor back passes by Bungay played Hindringham in and on both occasions Tom Wickham had to make vital saves.

Bungay took the lead in the 20th minute as Crisp sent Hunter away down the left and he cut in to beat the keeper for his first goal of the season. The hosts moved 2-0 ahead in the 31st minute as Ryan Cook lashed in an unstoppable 25 yard volley which went in off the bar.

In the second half Canham forced the keeper to get down and turn away his 52nd minute shot, but immediately the visitors pulled one back as Matt Hudson fired through a crowded six-yard box with Wickham, probably unsighted, unable to hold the effort.

It put their tails up and they were level in the 61st minute when Wickham did well to block a fierce close-range shot from Josh Clark but the impetus carried the ball over the line.

Riches and Crisp put attempts over the bar as they sought a winner but it was Hindringham who moved ahead with 11 minutes left, Clark stealing into the six-yard box ahead of Wickham to steer a cross home.

It had not been a good half for Bungay but to their credit they kept battling and three minutes into added time, as the ball pin-balled around the six-yard area, Canham got the final touch to salvage a point.

Team: T Wickham, J Weston, C Hunting (J Knights), S Whiteman, T Hunter, D Mirner (S Flint), J Riches, R Cook, B Solomon (D Wigger), A Canham, R Crisp.

Tomorrow Bungay visit Fakenham Reserves in a league game, 2.30pm.
