Rocester 2 - 3 Hinckley AFC
Atletico came flying out the blocks against the Romans, but made hard work of the second half and eventually were happy to cling on to a slender victory.

Everything was great for Hinckley in the first half going 3 goals up in 30 minutes, and looking like cruising to victory. First Jordan Wilson opened the scoring on minutes when a corner from the right dropped to his feet on the edge of the goal area and he guided the ball past Lewis Bullock in the home goal. 15 minutes later and James Jepson doubled the lead with a great strike, running onto a loose ball 25 yards out, curling the ball over the keeper into the top left corner. Half an hour in and AFC were 3 up, when Wilson was released through the middle and when one on one with Bullock, the Keeper made a great save, only for the ball to rebound to Louis Hamilton on the edge of the area who took a step inside his marker and fired past Bullock from 16 yards. Bullock then made a superb double save at the feet of Wilson saving his first effort and then blocking the follow up with his body, keeping the score down to 3 at half time.

In a Jekyll and Hyde twist, AFC completely forgot to play any attacking football in the second half, and were content to sit on the 3 goal cushion. Rocester got a lifeline in the game just after the hour when Jordan Godfrey was played through he middle and he chipped over George Warren came out of goal. Sensing the malaise of AFC, Rocester continued to push forward and with 10 minutes remaining were awarded a penalty that Jordan Dodd comfortably converted. A last nervous 10 minutes saw AFC defend in numbers and hold on to a vital 3 points.
