Parson Drove 92 4 Peterborough NECI 3
Two mistakes gifted NECI a 2-0 lead but Drove came back to win.
Kensey Carter made it 2-1. Daniel Short was pulled down but NECI saved the penalty.
The second half saw an NECI player sent off for foul, abusive language. Drove were 3-1 down but a free kick just outside the area from Brazil, Jordan Jolly with a spot kick and a Ben Pearce header sealed the win. Three NECI players already cautioned got a second yellow after the final whistle.
