Penalty drama as Boro share spoils
GRIMSBY Borough halted a run of three consecutive Baris Northern Counties East League Division One defeats but paid the penalty as they shared the spoils with Clipstone Welfare at the Bradley Community Stadium.
Nathan Millington gave the visitors a first-half lead, but William Sinclair levelled for improving Borough with 15 minutes remaining.
And the hosts had a golden opportunity to earn all three points from a penalty in the 90th minute – but Lewis Grant's spot-kick rebounded off the crossbar and the game finished 1-1.
Louth Town suffered a disappointing 3-0 home defeat as victors Shirebrook leapfrogged Cleethorpes and moved up to second in the table.

Boss Daryl Clare, pictured, was hoping his White Wolves charges could get their promotion hopes back on track with a victory at Park Avenue on Saturday.
But the visitors proved too strong on the day and, with victory over Louth in the bag, climbed to within a point of leaders Athersley Recreation.
Cleethorpes, who were without a game on Saturday, dropped to fourth – Albion Sports shot up to third with a 5-2 home triumph against Worsbrough Bridge Athletic.
