Second-placed Inglewood United’s three-game losing run in all competitions ended when they picked up what could be a vital point against Floreat Athena at E&D Litis Stadium.
Neither side managed to repeat the sensational goal scoring exploits witnessed between them in the Westfield FFA Cup on Monday, which saw Athena triumph 9-2.
Mark Pritchard’s sixth-minute penalty was cancelled out by a Jonathan Stynes’ first half injury-time strike to keep the scores locked at 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes.
In the closing stages, both had a player see red when Scott Blackmore received two yellow cards in the space of 11 minutes and Lewis McMahon was dismissed following a fracas after the final whistle.
And while the draw means Inglewood have fallen five points behind champions and leaders, Bayswater City, skipper, David Cyrus believes Saturday’s point could be a stepping stone to a return to form for his side.
“It’s a great turnaround for us, getting the team spirit back after that result in the cup,” he said.
“The boys did really well to get the point, but it’s great for us. Everyone has a blip in the season and hopefully that was ours.
“We set the standards high and that point could make a difference coming into the final half of the season. That point just might make a difference for us.”
