Both sides were well and truly stretched to field a side, but having done so, produced a worthwhile run out although some of the defending was very generous.
Goals were a plenty as the half time scoreline read 3-3, with guest Eamonn Rogers giving the Saints an early lead thanks to a well placed header.

The visitors took advantage of some slack Saints' defending to go 2-1 in front but Craig Linnie levelled matters.
Colney then regained the lead only for an own goal by Anthony Donnelly to end the first half scoring at 3-3.
Goal-bound efforts were not so plentiful in the second half although the game was settled late on thanks to Saints striker Mark Savory.
Manager, Dave Whitehead, was pleased with the effort put in by his relatively young side but was still on the lookout for new players to strengthen his squad.
Next weekend the Saints entertain another local outfit in Sandridge Rovers Reserves at Francis Bacon School (ko 2.30pm).
Last weekend the Saints and London Road (Sat) stood in silence for a former member of both clubs, Dean Bozier, who died at the young age of 43.
His service took place last Tuesday.
