EVO-STIK South - East Division: Chalfont St Peter 1 Cambridge City 1
Ryan Sharman was on target again for City as they recorded their 2nd draw on the road in a week, however, it was a case of two points dropped as City failed to make their dominance count.
In difficult blustery conditions, good football was not surprisingly difficult and on a tricky surface both sides struggled to make inroads in the first half, but City did have a guilt edged chance from the spot, but Lewis Wilson hit a weak penalty that was comfortably saved.
Following an indifferent first 45 minutes, City took control after the break and took a deserved lead when Ryan Sharman headed home a 51st minute corner. City pushed on and looked good for more goals, but the home side, who had threatened little, found a way back into the game via a free-kick on 68 which Jake Cass blasted home with Liam Conroy rooted to the spot. City went on to waste some excellent chances to secure maximum points, and in the end had to settle for a frustrating single point return.
Despite the frustrations of the day, the result moves City up to 4th in the table, seven points behind leaders Moneyfields, but with a game in hand, and City will be looking to reduce that gap when they host Arlesey Town on Monday night.
