THE most thrilling game in Blue Square South this weekend came at Twerton Park were Bath City came from 2-0 to win 4-3.

Two goals from Jahson Downes had given Basingstoke a commanding lead but these were cancelled by strikes from Gethin Jones and a Sean Hankin own goal either side of the interval.

Jones scored a second to give Bath the lead for the first time but Ashley Mitchell looked to have earned the visitor's a share of the spoils with a goal 16 minutes from time. Bath snatched all three points though when sub Mike Perrott notched in the 90th minute.

New signing Paul Goodacre marked his Braintree debut with a goal as they beat Staines Town 2-0 after Jacob Mingle had opened the scoring for the Iron.

A 22nd minute penalty from Charlie Sheringham was all that separated Bishop's Stortford and Havant & Waterlooville and two goals from Will Hendry and one from Stafforde Palmer gave Maidenhead a wonderful 3-0 away win at Eastleigh.

Chelmsford overcame a fourth minute goal from manager less Welling United to win 3-1 with Dave Rainford, Rob Edmans and Antonio Murray on target for the Clarets.

A 90th minute equaliser from Louis Bridges sent Worcester City home with a point after a 2-2 draw at Hampton & Richmond and a hat trick from debutant loanee Dave Gilroy gave Weston-super-Mare a 3-2 win over Lewes.

There were five different scorers for Thurrock as they brushed aside Dorchester Town 5-2, Dover kept up the pressure on leaders Newport with a 2-1 win at basement side Weymouth and Woking went down 3-1 away at Bromley.
