BASINGSTOKE Town and Met Police shared a goal feast at Imber Court on Saturday in the Southern League Premier South as it finished 4-4.

Town boss Jason Bristow made four changes to the side which lost at home to Dorchester the previous week, with James Orvis, Charlie Kennedy, Shane Hollamby and Ben Wright all coming in.

The home side were the first team to have the ball in the net from the head of Jack Mazzone, but it was ruled off side.

After 16 minutes, Town opened the scoring, as Sam Argent converted from close range after Jack McKnight’s shot had been blocked.

The home side hit back five minutes later, as Max Blackmore netted after a goal mouth scramble, then Mazzone made it 2-1 from a corner.

With just two minutes left in the first half, the Met Police doubled their lead as Jonathan Hippolyte scored with a great finish.

However, there was still time for the visitors to pull a goal back, as George Bennett’s cross was met by the head of Jack McKnight.

Just four minutes after the interval, Town were awarded a penalty after Bennett was fouled, with Met Police’s Hippolyte being the guilty party.

Dean Stow from the spot levelled things and straight from the re-start, great work by Jack McKnight led to Ben Wright giving the visitors the lead.

This was to last 10 minutes, as on the hour mark, Mazzone with a volley made it 4-4.

After this both sides had chances to win the game, but neither could find the winner.

Next up for Town is a league trip to Staines on Saturday, once again in the league.
