Steve Clegg’s side went ahead just five minutes in through Lloyd Henderson.

Edgehill doubled their lead on the half-hour mark, Joe Gallagher taking full advantage of a defensive mix-up between Curtis Rose and keeper Ben Rowe.

It looked like Edgehill were heading for the three points, but Rovers battled back in style, Ryan Megginson smashing in a free-kick from 25 yards before Alistair Jennings smashed in an equaliser.

Henderson and Gallagher shone for Edgehill while Rovers boss Jordan Lee couldn’t single out a man of the match.

“It was a great effort from both sides and a point apiece was probably a fair result,” said Lee.

West Pier stayed top of the pile after a 3-0 win over Hunmanby United.

Will Jenkinson’s men played with a strong wind behind them in the opening 45 minutes and found themselves 2-0 up at the break.

Player-boss Jenkinson grabbed their first, powering in a superb header from Rich Tolliday’s corner before Neil Thomas poked home a second after good work from Martin Cooper and Gaz Thomas.

The points were wrapped up thanks to Si Reeves’ goal after 65 minutes after good build-up play with Tolliday.

Reeves was Pier’s man of the match with Tolliday also impressing.

Darren Crawford was man of the match for Hunmanby.

Newlands stay hot on the heels of leaders Pier thanks to a 5-2 win at Filey Town.

Man of the match Liam Salt was the matchwinner for Paddy Mancrief’s side, banging in a hat-trick.

Liam Mancrief and Ben David bagged the other goals for Newlands, who also had stand-in goalkeeper Chris Dove in form.

Max Gage and an own goal saw Filey level at 2-2 heading in at the break before Newlands pulled away in the second half.

Seamer hammered Scalby 7-0, Danny Glendinning hitting five of their goals.

The hosts were out of sight by the break, Glendinning bagging a hat-trick and Ali Caw and Joel Ramm also notching.

Scalby battled to keep Seamer out in the second half, but Glendinning added another two to wrap up a 7-0 victory for Joe Tiffany’s outfit.
