Barnet made it three draws in a row in the National League by picking up points against both Wrexham and Torquay United across the bank holiday weekend.

Dan Sparkes’ goal ensured a 1-1 scoreline in North Wales on Saturday while the Bees battled back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 with newly-promoted Torquay United on Monday, adding to the previous 2-2 draw that had been played out with Chesterfield last week.

In Monday’s encounter, Torquay scored twice in the first 30 minutes through Jean-Yves Koue Niate and Armani Little, but Ephron Mason-Clarke halved the deficit just after half-time before Jack Taylor struck the leveller with a minute to go.

Torquay, looking for a third straight victory to extend their good form following promotion from the National League South, took just five minutes to open the scoring through Koue Niate with his first goal of the season.

It was also a first of the campaign for Little on 30 minutes, who found the net with a special strike from range to double Torquay’s advantage.

While not exactly in winning form, Barnet have proved tough to beat in the last few weeks, and they hauled themselves back into the game just after the second half started when Mason-Clarke beat Lucas Covolan.

It looked as though Torquay were going to hold out, but with just a minute of regulation time remaining, Mason-Clarke turned provider for Taylor to slot past Covolan and seal a third straight draw for Darren Currie’s side.

The second draw in that sequence came on Saturday as two early goals couldn’t separate the Bees from Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

JJ Hooper put Wrexham in front after only two minutes, but Barnet levelled after only eight through Dan Sparkes.

New signing Charlie Rowan started in defence as part of a new 3-5-2 shape alongside Ricardo Santos and Harry Taylor.

However, that defence was breached within two minutes after they fell asleep at a quick throw-in, and Hooper was alive to lob the ball over Scott Loach.

With only eight minutes on the clock though, it was all square again as Jack Taylor played in an excellent cross for Sparkes, and he made no mistake at the back post, firing into the bottom corner.

Both sides had chances to snatch the advantage in an entertaining half. James Dunne came close for Barnet with an effort from the edge of the area, while Mark Harris forced a save from Loach.

The match continued in a similar vein after half-time, with neither side able to capitalise on the opportunities they were creating.

Luke Summerfield fired over from six yards with the Dragons’ best chance of the second period, while Shaquile Coulthirst was also wasteful at the other end when he headed wide.

Neither team found a way to grab a winner, both settling for a point in the end.

Next up for Barnet in a visit to Eastleigh this Saturday, who were successful away at promotion hopefuls Solihull Moors on Monday. Kick-off is at 3.00pm at the Silverlake Stadium.
