DROITWICH Men drew 2-2 at Evesham in the West Midlands Division Two.
Spa went into this encounter looking to avenge the home loss they suffered before Christmas.
They started slowly and found it difficult to the hold the ball in the middle of the park which Evesham exploited to score two well-worked goals.
After the break, Spa pushed further forward with Mike Langston bagging a brace, both from penalty corners.
