The home side took the lead when Anthony Simpsson headed home, only for Aaron Field to level, before Tucker struck on 87 minutes.
Chalgrove recorded their first win in a 2-1 victory at home to Eynsham.
Simon Godfrey put Chalgrove ahead with a penalty awarded for handball and they doubled their lead through a Nick Skiller header.
Although a defensive mix-up allowed Tom McCudden to slot home from close range, Chalgrove held on.
Chris Davies, Alex Woodfine and Matt Keeble notched doubles as Oakley United crushed North Oxford 9-1.
Lee Parrack, Lenny Sackey and an own goal completed their tally, with Max Palmer replying for the visitors.
Nicky McMahon hit a second-half equaliser as Oxford Irish twice fought back to draw 2-2 at Launton Sports in the Premier Division.
Launton took the lead when Paul Lisseter headed Jonny Moore’s free-kick over the stranded keeper.
However, the hosts suffered a setback when Ben Miles went off injured with a badly lacerated ear after a collision with the Irish keeper.
After the break, McMahon levelled from close range after Launton keeper James Lisseter had parried a goal-bound effort.
Nicky Baldock then restored Launton’s lead after Mark Scanes’s free-kick hit a post.
