HARRIERS struck late to take a point from league leaders York City, a 1-1 draw in which the visitors dominated.
With some 23 chances at goal on the day, Harriers were in control for much of the afternoon, but were made to pay for spurning too many opportunities in the first half.
After Ashley Hemmings, Ashley Chambers, Ed Williams and Sam Austin had all gone close before the break, Griffiths gave York the lead with a well-taken strike on 37 minutes.
Far from being deflated, Harriers kept up their own assault on the home goal and reduced the high-flying Minstermen to just a handful of attempts all afternoon.
At the other end, when Williams had headed wide and Austin and Weeks had both seen efforts blaze off target, it looked like Harriers, while in the ascendancy, would have to make do with another defeat.
That was until the 82nd minute when a deserved equaliser arrived; Peniket nudging a cross into the path of Hemmings who turned the ball home from close range.
The visitors might even have turned the game on its head by winning it and ending City’s six-month unbeaten run, but Shenton’s low, angled drive fizzed just past the post.
