Deeping Rangers and Holbeach United draw after hard-fought Uhlsport United Counties League Premier Division contest
Jordan Macleod's moment of magic made it all-square on derby day.
He earned a point for Deeping Rangers by weaving a path through Holbeach United's defence with 20 minutes left at Carter's Park on Wednesday night.
Dan Jarvis - who struck the Clarets' first-half opener from Michael Simpson's assist - fed Macleod on the counter-attack to punish the Tigers.
Jonny Lockie claimed a double against his former club by pouncing on two very different touches from keeper Lewis Elsom.
The equaliser came when Elsom tried to take a touch past Lockie, only to be left embarrassed as the striker went past him for a simple tap-in.
Just eight minutes later, Lockie knocked home the rebound when Elsom produced a top-class save from Spencer Tinkler's header following Danny Setchell's set-piece.
Lockie missed the target with a hat-trick opportunity soon after Macleod's solo effort.
Substitute Jeremiah Adams almost won it for Deeping - firing wide and then having a stoppage-time effort disallowed for offside when Macleod could have scored again.
But a point each was fair enough after a hard-fought contest which produced few chances.
