Hamworthy Recreation 4 Parley Sports 3

Both sides served up a 7 goal feast at Magna Road with the highlight being Rec keeper Sam Jones scoring with a long clearance from inside his own box in the 2nd half.

Rec gave debuts to new signings Richie Sands (returning to the fold) and Dave Wrixton (taking the place of injured Luke Geddes) also starting was Josh Pratt.

The hosts took the lead in the 12th minute through an ALI GARARD turn and strike after a fine cross. CHRIS LONG doubled the lead on the stroke of half time, converting a fine through ball.

Between the two goals Gerard had to retire with an injured foot (later confirmed as a broken metertarsal) and - unrelated - a yellow for Parley's Lee White for a late tackle on Ross Hull-Brown

It was 3 in the 53rd minute when Callum Charlton (on for Garard) broke through and finished 1 on 1 with the visitors keeper.

10 minutes later and Parley reduced the arrears when Matt Newberry converted a penalty after Mike La Ronde was fouled in the box.

4 minutes later and it was game on when La Ronde converted following a quickly taken free kick with the Rec defence nowhere.

Rec went back in front on 74 minutes through SAM JONES wonder strikebut Parley kept plugging away and made for a nervy final few minutes when Josh Moody headed home in the 88th minute to further reduce the arrears.

One black mark for the visitors was the sending off for Jason Brittain for 2 yellows received in the 86th & 89th minutes.
