Senior football round-up: Go Bowling return with Real draw
An early Luke Blackburn goal was quickly wiped out by Real’s equaliser.
With Bowling struggling and Real playing some great football, it was a surprise when full-back Liam Kay put the hosts ahead just before half time.
The second period was more of the same with Real on top as Bowling keeper and star man Paul Yarnell pulled off three last-ditch saves.
Adrian Millard then missed a penalty for Bowling as Real sensed a comeback and they were rewarded with two goals in 10 minutes.
Bowling grabbed a point when substitute Matt Conway equalised and then held on as Real nearly snatched victory with the last kick of the game.
