Erico Sousa’s stoppage-time penalty handed Boreham Wood a point in an eight-goal National League thriller with Eastleigh.

Sousa’s spot-kick in the eighth minute of added time clinched a 4-4 draw at Meadow Park on a night when the home side trailed 2-0, led 3-2 and looked to have lost it at 4-3.

First-half goals from Jake Taylor and Enzio Boldewijn appeared to have put the visitors in the driving seat, but Sousa dragged the hosts back into it within three minutes of the restart and they were level six minutes later through Oscar Rutherford’s own goal.

Tyrone Marsh saw a 59th-minute penalty saved by Joe McDonnell and although Matt Robinson fired the home side in front with 24 minutes remaining, there looked like being a twist in the tail when Paul McCallum made it 3-3 before substitute Malachi Dotse put Eastleigh 4-3 ahead with a minute remaining.

However, Sousa kept his nerve when it mattered to ensure Boreham Wood finished with a point to show for their efforts.
