Fareham seconds go into the winter break fifth in Hampshire/Surrey Regional Division 1 – a position that would have been two places higher had they managed to hold on to a 2-1 lead and not concede a late equaliser against Haslemere at Henry Cort.
Fareham took the initiative and, after both Luke Gould and Paul Metcalf had gone close, took the lead with a well worked goal, set up by Ed Faherty and finished off by Kieran Page.
They held their advantage until the final play of the first half when Josh Cowell converted a penalty corner for Haslemere.
Fareham restored their lead through Gould (who hit the crossbar shortly before), but after both sides had exchanged saved penalty corners, Haslemere grabbed a second equaliser three minutes from time through Andy Powell after some excellent creative work outside the D by Cowell.
