Not Abbeyview's best performance of the season but not as bad as the score line suggested they found themselves 4-1 down after seemingly being punished for every mistake. At one stage it looked they could play until next week without scoring.
Raceview started the game well and 2 goals from Colin (Styler) Craig gave them a 2 goal lead going into half time. The half time break seemed to do nothing for Abbeyview as Raceview made it 3 when Styler got his hat trick. The game seemed beyond Abbeyview at this stage but they threw everything but the kitchen sink at Raceview before they eventually buckled.
A Roy of the Rovers moment as a touch of class from Roy Robinson got them back in the game 3-1. Raceview though stepped up the play again and made it 4 with another goal from Styler. Raceview at this stage again would have thought game over but for Abbeyview and in particular Henry Nutter they had other ideas. While soaking up Raceview pressure Abbeyview again applying their own and Henry Nutter does what he does best and score goals. In a 11 minute spell starting on the 75min Nutter scored the first of his goals. The second came in the 80th minute and made the score 4-3, and with just 4 minutes left Nutter scored his third of the game and the equalizer for Abbeyview.
