HONOURS were even in Welwyn Pegasus U14 Royals' opening game of the year.
Royals split six goals and the Mid Herts Rural Minors League Premier Division points with Bury Rangers Reds on Sunday.
This was a real tense game that went right to the last whistle before the points were shared.
Bury kicked off and both teams started slowly in the first game after the Christmas break. Few clear-cut chances were created in the opening 20 minutes.
The deadlock was broken though by Andrew Walshe, who powered through the Bury defence to poke the ball home.
Luke Walsh and Thomas Douglas had their best games of the season as Pegasus finished the half with a slender one-goal lead.
Not a lot went right for Pegasus after the break and the defence failed to clear the ball and Bury took advantage and equalised.
Worse was to follow when Pegasus gave away a penalty for handball and they found themselves 2-1 down.
Pegasus responded with a good period of pressure and they were finally rewarded with an equaliser as the ball was hit into the Bury area and Jack Reynolds managed to fire home.
The game was heading for a draw until some good play by the Bury strikers looked like they had won the game.
Royals' defenders were caught out of position and the two strikers made some space to shoot past the keeper with just minutes remaining.
Pegasus then threw everything at Bury and Max Tann struck home the final equaliser with seconds to go after a mix up in the Bury defence.
