Tydd St Mary were missing five regular players but still managed a 3-2 win against fellow Boston Division 2 promotion rivals Westside Rangers on Saturday.
An early goal by Daniel Chapman was harshly ruled out for offside but Chapman soon made amends and scored a great goal after 30 minutes for Tydd to lead 1-0. Westside equalised before half time.
Westside then took the lead from a free kick and were awarded a penalty but Tydd keeper Martin Cherry pulled off a great save.
Tydd took heart from this and Tim Lowe’s cross was deflected into the Westside net by their own player. The Saints pushed on and Mark Garner smashed a stunning strike into the top corner to win the game 3-2.
