Jewdinese and L'Equipe drew for the second time this season following another entertaining encounter.

Richard Fogelman was on target again for L'Equipe. He somehow managed to pick up a hamstring injury midweek from an arcade boxing machine against a bouncer, but he opened the scoring 20 minutes from time.

Jewdinese equalised soon after as L'Equipe switched off at the back, with super-sub Zac Brin scoring with a well-placed header from a great cross by Barney Rhodes.

L'Equipe came very close to nicking all three points at the end, with Jonny Kaye, Richard Alexander, Craig Draper and Fogelman all going close.

L'Equipe joint-manager Dan Cordell told JC Sport: "Today was a tale of missed chances - apart from their goal we restricted them to long-range efforts and luckily their strikeforce couldn't hit the target.

"We were sluggish getting going and our defensive six (back four and two solid centre midfielders) were solid throughout and Josh Kaye had a cracker of a debut at centre back - putting his head on most balls and thwarting most attacking play from Jewdinese.

"We will settle with the point and are still unbeaten this year. The team is still gelling and we now have a great platform to build from.

"On another note I fully appreciate the ref explaining all his decisions to us after the game - it doesn't happen often but would like to thank him. I would also like to say that there is no place in Sunday league MSFL football for abusive and threatening behaviour and one of the Jewdinese boys needs to have a long hard look at himself after threatening our striker with violent actions - I think his parents on the sideline need to control him a little more."

Jewdinese boss Darren Lawrence told JC Sport: "It's frustrating as i know we have the quality to get six points out of six against them, but credit to L'Equipe who gave us a good game both times. We will be keeping a close eye on their results throughout the coming weeks."

Club chairman Jake Erlich told JC Sport: "A positive performance after a heavy loss in the cup last week. The boys settled into the game early and really showed that we are capable of causing problems for other teams in our league. We had chance after chance in the first half but failed to put them away which meant we went into halftime at 0-0.

"A slow start by us in the second half really cost us and we saw ourselves 1-0 down very early on. However a sub made by manager Darren Lawrence replacing Joe Meisel with Zac Brin proved to be decisive. From then on it was really stalemate as both teams had the chances to win the game but no-one took them so again the game finished 1-1.
