LOWESTOFT'S attempt to turn the Ridgeons League title race into a procession was undermined as they were kept in check by a Harwich and Parkeston side fighting for their Premier Division lives.

The 32 points gulf between the teams counted for nothing as Harwich belied their second-from-bottom position to twice battle back from behind for a deserved share of the spoils.

After falling behind to a 19th-minute strike from Jamie Godbold, Harwich, under the new stewardship of Mark Morsley, hit back a minute before the break when Matt Stace's ferocious 40- yard effort left Adam Rix grasping at thin air.

Midway through the second half the Blues restored their lead when Gary McGee's shot from 12 yards squirmed under Wootten.

With 15 minutes remaining Harwich's Matt Carmichael broke free from his marker and equalised.

Kirkley and Pakefield produced a masterclass with a thrilling 3-1 victory over second-placed Wivenhoe Town. Nick Shorten's men remain unbeaten at home in the league after this fine win.

Nathan Stone set up Chris Henderson for the opener and Justin Fox teed up Wivenhoe old boy Allicion Blake for a simple tap-in. Blake then made it 3-0 with a header. In a rare breakaway Aaron Churchyard reduced the deficit to complete the scoring.
