Isthmian Premier Division: Corinthian Casuals 3 Wingate & Finchley 3
Wingate & Finchley had to settle for a share of the spoils after playing out a 3-3 draw with historic outfit Corinthian Casuals.
A Oluwaseun Akinsanya hat-trick proved not enough for the Blues as the Casuals netted a 90th minute equaliser through Robert Jamison at King George's Field.
Benjamin Checklit gave the hosts the lead as he got on the end on an incoming cross in the 11th minute.
Six minutes before the half-time break Wingate levelled the score as Akinsanya headed home as Charlie Ruff popped the ball up to striker after some great inside the Casuals box.
