A DRAW was enough for Cam to clinch top spot ahead of Wotton.
Everside’s attacking approach saw them come unstuck after being caught out at the back with a soft goal giving the home side the advantage.
The second half saw Wotton extend their lead to 2-0 when a free kick floated in the box caused confusion and the ball crept past Euan Edmunds in goal.
Captain Tom Viney rose highest from a corner to head in Cam’s first.
Callum Eldridge then levelled the score in style with a 25-yard screamer before Josh Taylor was rewarded for his hard work with a goal from close range.
A lapse in concentration saw Wotton equalise right on the final whistle but that couldn’t dampen Cam’s mood.
