They pushed forward for the equaliser and were rewarded in added time when Dominic Carmanati was fouled in the penalty area and Blake scored from the spot.
UNITED COUNTIES LEAGUE Premier Division
St Ives Town 1 Deeping Rangers 1
SAINTS recorded their third draw in a row as both teams struggled to gain the upper-hand.
Rangers, spurred by the looming prospect of relegation, came out fired-up, and took the lead in the 17th minute direct from a corner.
Glyn Cooke and Dan Pilsworth fought hard for an equaliser, but the Rangers keeper denied them both.
It was not until the 74th minute that Saints got back on terms through Dan Newman at the back post after some good work from Cooke and Liam Kennett.
St Ives assistant manager Jezz Hall said afterwards:: "It was a bit of a non-event because of the wind, to be honest.
"We're happy with the result, though, as it takes our run to five unbeaten games."
Huntingdon Town 0 Daventry Town 0
THESE teams drew last time they met, and it was to be no different this time as the wind scuppered any chances of flowing, constructive football.
Ryan Hunt in the Huntingdon goal made a good save in the first half, but had only one other to make in the whole game.
Things were little different at the other end, as Paul Bass had only two half-chances all match.
Ross Summer was Hunts' best player on the day, but nothing could break the stalemate.
General manager Mick Hunt said: "In the conditions there was just no playing football. Our chances of a win were literally blown away by the wind."
Eynesbury Rovers 1 Northampton Sileby Rangers 1
ROVERS looked to get back to winning ways against a struggling Northampton, but neither side could find the winner in a close game.
The game was goalless at half-time, but Rangers took the lead four minutes after the break.
Rovers struggled to find the equaliser, but Paul Childerley saved a point for them with a goal six minutes into injury time.
Halcyon Frames Ltd League Division 2
Watertight Wanderers 4 Sapley Rovers 1
SAPLEY came away from Watertight with a disappointing defeat.
Despite a good display in the first half, Sapley went into the break 2-0 down.
Sapley started strongly in the second half but soon conceded another two goals to find themselves staring at a four-goal deficit.
Steve Jones put away a penalty for Sapley, which gave them a new impetus, but an injury to their goalkeeper saw them play the last 20 minutes with 10 men as Watertight eased home.
