League leaders Crawley Green Reserves having to settle for a point in a 1-1 home draw with Henlow . Luke Hills shooting Henlow into the lead in the 74th minute and when the Green's goal machine Ryan Smith was red carded just 60 seconds later the odds of them holding onto their seasons unbeaten ways looked slim, but hold onto that record they did via a equalizing goal from Robert Newman just six minutes from time.
