CGB Humbertherm 2-3 Boston United Res
Striker Korey Dyer-Stewart struck twice from the penalty spot as Boston United Reserves secured a last-gasp victory on Saturday afternoon.
Scott Dawson had headed United into the lead and Dyer-Stewart doubled the lead from the spot — but Humbertherm struck twice before half-time to bring the scores level.
The match was played in torrential rain, with thunder and lightning around the ground for most of the game.
Boosted by the return of several key players and the inclusion of first team trialist Dyer-Stewart, the whole squad were on a high upon arrival at the Thoresby Road ground.
Right from the start the Pilgrims attacked and gained a corner in the third minute which DAWSON powerfully headed into the top corner.
United doubled their lead 11 minutes later. Grant Butler cleverly set DYER-STEWART through and once he was taken down in the area, he picked himself up to send the keeper the wrong way from the spot.
Humbertherm reduced the deficit on 26 minutes when Daniel TROTT powered a 20-yard free-kick into the top corner.
Ten minutes later, it was all-square again when William CLIFFORD finished with aplomb following a short backpass which left keeper Sam Vince stranded.
The Pilgrims controlled the second half and pushed strongly for a winner throughout.
Their reward eventually arrived in the 90th minute when DYER-STEWART fired home his second penalty of the afternoon after once again being tugged to the ground.
