Match Report:
Farnborough Town secured their first point of the Conference season in an emotional night at Cherrywood Road.
Dean Austin's men battled hard against the buzzing Bees and might have even nicked all three points late on had captain Gary Holloway not screwed his shot wide when in a good position.
This was an emotional night for the home supporters who are currently protesting over the proposed takeover of the club.
A large percentage of the 1,069 crowd, including the large Barnet contingent, staged a sit-in vigil on the pitch to demonstrate over the new ownership of Ron Higgins and Tony Turberville.
With this going on, anything on the pitch was a bonus for Boro and the fans, for the first time in a long summer went home happy.
Barnet started the stronger however and had Boro on the ropes early on with giant striker Liam Hatch finding himself with no fewer than three aerial opportunities, two of which missed the target, the third bravely gathered by keeper Craig Holloway.
Although Boro showed spirit, they were second best to Barnet who were quicker and sharper to the chase.
That said however, although they created chances, there wasn't much to worry the somewhat makeshift Boro backline.
Instead, the best chance of the half came at the other end when Ali Chaaban released Tony Taggart, who shot into the body of Bees keeper Shane Gore.
The half-time protest warmed up the fans and the team responded after the break as the rain came down and quickened up the pace of the game.
Barnet still posed the biggest threat in front of goal however with Richard Graham twice going close from the edge of the box, the second of which producing a fine reaction save from Holloway.
Boro's Adam Theo came too close to putting the ball through his own net, while substitute Lee Roach saw his glancing header from Graham's corner fly just wide of the far post.
Holloway could well have sealed what would have been the ultimate in smash and grab raids from Taggart's throughball late on, but Boro fans would have been happy to end what has been a turbulent fortnight on a somewhat happier note.
