Kelsey Benjamin restored Tucville’s lead two mimutes later, skipping past the defender on the right side before finishing through the legs of the goalkeeper into the lower left corner. The tricky Benjamin further strengthened his team’s grip on the contest in the 21st minute, slotting home from the centre of the box, after collecting a left side pass from Delon Williams.

It was from this point where the contest went ‘pear shaped’ for Tucville as Albouystown levelled the matchup in the space of three minutes in the form of substitute Kemo Scott.

The lanky Scott reduced the deficit to one goal in the 23rd minute, slotting home from right side unchallenged after collecting a right side pass.

Wild celebrations then reverberated around the venue as Scott equalised in the 26th minute with a brilliant flicked on header with his back to goal into the top left corner.

Stunned by their double concession, Tucville re-established their lead in the 28th minute as Tefon Daly scored compliments of a right side shot into the top left hand corner.

Nevertheless, Albouystown would not be denied as Tevin Curry sent the crowd into a frenzy, slotting home unchallenged into the centre, after latching onto a left side corner-kick in the final moments.
