A last-gasp goal denied Blackstones maximum points from their United Counties League Division One trip to Melton Town on Saturday.

Melton substitute Joe Williams struck in the 90th minute to earn a 1-1 draw for the hosts.

Ben Porter had earlier given Blackstones a 55th minute. They drop a place to sixth following the draw.

Oakham United suffered a heavy 7-0 home defeat by third-placed Potton.

It took 22 minutes for the visitors to break the deadlock through Aaron Murrell, but then the floodgates opened.

Ryan Don’s doubled the Royals’ lead two minutes later and then Murrell made it three after 33 minutes.

Gary Ansell-Carter amd Danny Webb struck two more goals before half-time to make it 5-0 at the break.

Oakham regrouped in the second half with Calum Forster adding the sixth after 57 minutes before Ansell-Carter completed the rout with three minutes remaining.

Deeping Rangers’ Premier Division match at Leicester Nirvana was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. They host Desborough on Tuesday night.
