The championship party is on hold for Moulton Harrox.
Only a mathematical miracle could deny them from taking the Premier Division title.
One more point would be enough but the unbeaten record is all over.
They looked on course to celebrate on Tuesday night as top scorer Ollie Maltby put them ahead.
However, a second-half fightback from Pinchbeck United boosted their bid for runners-up spot and leaves Moulton waiting for that magical moment when they are crowned champions.
When Maltby poked home from close range after 14 minutes, it appeared Moulton would get the job done.
Maltby’s penalty appeal was turned down and Joe Townsend should have done better with a far-post header.
Tony Edwards missed the target at the other end but the champions-elect looked in control.
After the break, though, Tyler Wright sent a warning when he fired wide and then Pinchbeck levelled thanks to Edwards’ cross-shot into the top corner.
Maltby and Tom Panton could not test goalkeeper Joe Ashton but Moulton number one Lee Kenealy was called into action when he pushed out Liam Ogden’s effort.
The winner came on 81 minutes as Edwards slotted home from the penalty spot after Bobby Patterson’s trip on Tom Sergeant.
There was still time for more yellow cards and a few anxious moments around the penalty box.
But Pinchbeck held on to inflict Moulton’s first league defeat of the season.
There is no real doubt that they will claim the title and what an achievement to stay unbeaten until now.
As well as trying to finish in second place behind them, Pinchbeck will be aiming to cause another upset when they meet Moulton in the President Premier Shield final at Stamford on Friday, May 13.
