Havant & Waterlooville 0-0 Boreham Wood
Havant gained their first point in the National League with a hard-fought 0-0 draw at home to Boreham Wood.
Ellery Balcombe pulled off an amazing close-range stop for the visitors in the first-half after Andy Robinson intercepted David Stephens' poor pass.
The visiting keeper was also on top form to deny Wes Fogden with a bullet header.
Balcombe smothered a prospective chance for Hawks forward Nicke Kabamba as he bore down on goal as the hosts pressed for a a first win since gaining promotion last season.
After the break, affairs remained tight and even last-season's 20-goal man Angelo Balanta could not make an impression.
Ryan Young saved well from substitute Bradley Ash late on to get the Hawks off the mark.
