WIMBORNE were forced to settle for a point after letting a two-goal lead slip at Met Police.

Magpies, seeking a second away victory in four days, edged in front on the stroke of half-time when Tony Lee broke through the centre and slotted in.

Sam Bayston doubled the tally around the hour mark, but the hosts forged a late rally. Jack Mazzone pulled one back before netting again, this time from the penalty spot, with around five minutes to play to earn a 2-2 draw.

Met Police made a strong start, but found themselves behind as Lee raced away to put Wimborne ahead in first-half stoppage time.

He went close to adding a second with an overhead kick soon after the break, but Bayston made no mistake on 59 minutes, linking up with Luke Burbidge before converting.

Met opted for a triple substitution and it had the desired effect, reducing the arrears with 15 minutes to play when Mazzone nipped in after Cameron Plain had charged from his goal.

And Mazzone then converted from the spot to set up a grandstand finish.

Lee twice went close to snatching a winner for Magpies, heading over and also striking the underside of the crossbar, before a last-gasp Met Police penalty shout was waved away.

The draw keeps Wimborne 10th in Southern League South.

Magpies: Plain, Hester (Penny), Davidson, Poole, Byrne (Maybury), Young, Pettefer, Diaz (Kellaway), Burbidge, Bayston, Lee.

Unused subs: Stokoe, Shepherd.
