Catford lost ground on Jewdinese, but it could have been worse were it not for a last-ditch leveller from Simon Wolfson in a thriller against Boca.

Yonni Bord and Jamie Sinai were the other marksmen for the Cats.

It was a poor quality game, but very high on entertainment with both teams creating a number of chances throughout the game. The momentum swung violently from one side to the next throughout but both teams defended poorly.

The Cats went ahead twice - once in each half - but then went 3-2 down after a defensive mix-up in the second half.

Keeper Guy Ben-Aroya pulled off a string of impressive saves, including one double-save when there were a number of Boca players looking to put the ball into the seemingly empty net.

The Cats had a goal disallowed for an apparent push, before sending everyone forward for a late, late corner. Bord sent the ball in under the crossbar and through a heap of bodies it fell to Wolfson who threw everything he had at the ball to force it over the line. It was a scrappy goal, but is Catford's nomination for goal of the week as it is the first goal that Simon has ever scored in 17 years of playing for the club. That it rescued a point made it all the more special."

Two more strikes from top-scorer Dovi Fehler and Yosh Silverman accounted for the Boca goals.
