Bourne Town earned a point in the UCL Division One at Rushden & Higham United on Saturday in a high-scoring 4-4 draw.
Thomas Cardall was the Wakes’ hat-trick hero as he netted a treble to help ensure his side earned a share of the spoils.
Craig Rook was also on target for Town who fought back from a 3-2 half-time deficit.
The result leaves Bourne 15th in the United Counties League Division One league table.
