Hitchin Town Arena 4 St Peter's 2

ST PETER's were bought back down to earth following last week's convincing win as they lost out to Hitchin Town Arena.

The fixture had been switched to Lemsford the previous week after Hitchin's ground was unavailable.

The weather contributed to Arena's first goal as Saints goalkeeper Chris Caruana misjudged the flight of the ball.

Hitchin doubled their lead from the penalty spot and when young Caruana miskicked the ball straight to a Hitchin attacker the Saints found themselves 3-0 down.
