Quorn 4, Poachers 4

Boston Town fought back in sensational style to end their run of defeats.

The hosts took the lead in filthy conditions after 11 minutes but Liam Adams netted his first goal for the Poachers two minutes later to make t 1-1.

A smart finish saw the hosts go back in front after 19 minutes before Tom Mucklin grabbed a second equaliser from a corner after 38 minutes.

Quorn then took the lead for a third time when the referee gave them a penalty 10 minutes into the second half – and went on to notch a fourth after 69 minutes.

With top scorer Harry Limb forced off with an injury, it looked a tough ask for the visitors to fight back again.

But they pulled one back 12 minutes before the end when Richard Ford headed home his first goal of the season from a corner.

And with just three minutes of normal time left, Luke White stunned Quorn by making it 4-4. The Poachers could even had snatched a win in a chaotic finale in which they felt they should have been awarded a penalty.

Manager Gary Edgley said his side showed great character and he was happy to come home with a point.

“I don’t really know what we have to do to get a penalty! Quorn are a good team and made it a very difficult away day,” he said.

“The substitutes coming on together at 4-2 made a big difference. Pharrell Waite and Lori Borbely are players at the opposite ends of their playing careers but they’re both as important to the club.”

Town: Woolley, Dilley, Thompson, Ofushine, Ford, Mucklin, Beeson (Borbely), Sylla, Adams (Waite), Limb (Burdass), L White; subs: Waite, T White, Portas, Borbely
