SWANAGE Town & Herston shared the points with Purbeck rivals Corfe Castle after a 2-2 draw at Day's Park in the Dorset Premier League.

Swans produced a lacklustre and inept performance in the first half and Corfe were deservedly 2-0 ahead at half-time.

In a scrappy opening period the visitors went ahead after 20 minutes when Abraham Adejosi struck with a low shot past keeper Cam Geard.

Corfe doubled their lead five minutes before the break when keeper Geard misjudged a cross and it deflected in off the unfortunate Jack Bassett for an own goal.

Swans started the second half in a much more determined mood and the introduction of substitute George Sparrow seemed to add more aggression to the side.

The hosts reduced the arrears on 65 minutes when Charlie Dyke swivelled and finished with a low shot following a free-kick from Ogun Gundogdu.

With 72 minutes on the clock Dyke completed his brace and the equaliser with a great finish from an acute angle.

The leveller set up a pulsating last 18 minutes when Swans keeper Geard rescued his side with a great save from a shot by Courtney Johnstone.

The drama continued into the last few minutes when Jake Streams had a great chance to win it for Swans but was denied by a superb save from Corfe stopper Adam Morgan.

The result left Swans 12th in the league table, while Corfe remain bottom of the pile.
