One of the tightest Pascoe Cup premiership races in years isn't any clearer after a round of stalemates where the top sides failed to to make a move.
Henwood Park had a chance against Leeton to pile pressure on top two teams Hanwood and Lake Albert after their 2-all draw at Griffith, but had to be content with a scoreless draw.
Leeton can consider themselves unlucky not to return home from a wet and miserable Rawlings Park with three points after a late strike was ruled not to have crossed the goal line.
Henwood Park keeper Nathan Trinder, who enjoyed a superb second half, saved the shot onto the crossbar which deflected agonisingly close to the line.
Trinder also saved a point blank shot from Luke Mandaglio on the hour mark to ensure Henwood Park kept their unbeaten record since round three intact.
Hawks striker Ryan McKenzie had two big chances in the second half, one hitting the post and another sailing just wide of the far corner.
"It was tough, wet weather footy and one goal was always going to win that," Trinder said.
"It was tight, our defence was really good and hungry but they were probably the better team in the second half."
Trinder said Henwood Park was guilty of not using the width of the pitch, and they looked most dangerous when young winger Cameron Weir was given space to use his speed.
"We were playing through the middle instead of wider, in wet weather you can't go up the guts," he said.
"You could see how much it opened up when you spread it wide and hit young angles, but we'll work on that."
The two sides will meet again next week in Leeton in a catch-up game, where Henwood Park can draw level with Lake Albert on top of the table with a win.
Currently fifth on the table, Leeton showed they will be a handful if they make finals.
"Full credit to their keeper, he played really well," Leeton vice captain Daniel McKenzie said.
"There was a couple of chances we probably should have finished, but equally they have their chances too and were unlucky not to score.
"They cramped the box really nicely. They put a lot of bodies in there and frustrated the boys, we couldn't find the final nail.
"We were unlucky with one of the calls but that's football, that happens. I thought the original shot was in but that's just football, you've just got to take the call and keep going."
