Eagles finished their league programme as they began, with a drawn result. They started slowly with Bovingdon having the best chances in the first quarter. Eagles keeper Dan Goad had to make a good save from a header at the far post after a break out by Bovingdon left eagles defenders stranded too far upfield, and on 15 minutes a poor pass by defender David Locke near the edge of his area nearly led to a goal but the shot went well wide.
Eagles did however, pick up momentum and went ahead after 23 minutes when Shane Carthy rode tackles through the Bovingdon rearguard and passed to Mitch Cox, who calmly put the ball into the net from 15 yards.
After missing a decent chance to score a few minutes later Bovingdon soon got an equalising goal with a low shot into the corner of the net from the edge of the penalty area . They nearly repeated the goal 10 minutes later but the teams went in all square at half time.
That did not last long after the restart. Within 5 minutes eagles were again a goal down, when a speculative long shot from the right whistled into the top corner with Goad given no chance. Eagles struggled to recover but almost succeeded after 67 minutes when a low cross from Carthy on the right found an unmarked Cox. He placed the ball well for the bottom corner but the Bovingdon keeper got down well to push the ball round the post.
Eagles really stepped up the pressure in the final quarter. A direct free kick from just outside the penalty area by Sam Williams went straight into the arms of the keeper having beaten the defensive wall, and sub Christian Grindal wandered upfield to almost score with a goal bound shot being blocked by covering defenders. After 80 minutes Eagles finally got their reward for some excellent play when Jamie Platt scored from a cross by Jan Genesis, touched on by Cox.
Another Grindal shot from the edge of the penalty area was pushed wide of the post by the keeper, and from the resulting corner Grindal headed wide.. Platt broke clear of a retreating defence but put the ball wide of the keeper and a post , and 5 minutes from the end Bovingdon missed a golden chance to snatch the winner when the ball bobbled around the goal area dangerously close to the Eagles line before being finally hacked away.
Neither side really deserved to lose so a draw was probably a fair result from a game strongly contested by both sides.
