Reserves in nine goal thriller
Exciting midweek game saw nine goals. Raja Tandoori man of the match: Marcus McKechnie.
Lings Elite avenged Knebworth's one-nil win in March as they edged the goalfest.
Lings were ahead inside the first minute through Mason Robinson but the Ks levelled five minutes later when Danny Kingston steered Max Smith's cross into the net. Robinson completed his hat trick before the half-hour mark but the visitors were pegged back when Marcus McKechnie scored from the penalty spot having been fouled. Almost immediately Robinson restored the two-goal cushion and two minutes later McKechnie prodded in from close range. Just before the break Robinson got his fifth with a low strike to go into the break at 5-3.
By comparison, the second half was dull! The Ks started brightly and Kingston saw an effort cleared off the line. With 15 minutes left Nathan Parker gave the hosts hope as his low drive found the net. Knebworth pressed for an equaliser and Konnor Hickin went close with a header finding the crossbar.
