Capel Plough 2 Achilles 5

Achilles went ahead in the 22nd minute when Barber latched onto a corner kick to net through a crowded goalmouth. The visitors increased their lead 10 minutes later when with the home defence backing off Tayler picked his spot and volleyed a 30 yard shot into the top corner of the net.

Capel reduced the arrears four minutes from the break when with Achilles looking for the flag Knight ran clear to tap the ball past the keeper.

As the home defence lost its composure after the break a header Lowe struck the home crossbar with the keeper beaten with a goal from Deller putting Achilles further ahead on the hour. The arrival of manager Powell on as a substitute injected new life into the home attack with a volley by p Tynan defecting off a defender into the net. The home defence was full stretch in the closing quarter Deller netting a fourth and Tayler who had a good game for the visitors netting a fifth in the 85th minute.

Two reflex saves by Hunt in the final minute denied Achilles striker Deller his hat-trick.
