Havant shocked West Conference champions Team Bath 3-0, an outstanding result, with Matt Cox scoring twice and Jon Pickett once.
Fareham allowed a two-goal interval lead to slip from their grasp and were held 3-3 by visitors Olton & West Warwicks.
Alex Boxall and Chris Davey gave Fareham an advantage that, though their hosts profligate finishing, Olton wiped away after the break.
Former Barton Peveril student Kieran Page looked to have won it with a debut 65th minute goal for Fareham, but the Midlanders’ rescued a point with an equaliser direct from the restart.
