St Albans Wanderers 2 St Ippolyts 5
DESPITE a positive approach throughout, the home team were punished for their own profligate finishing by a visiting side who took all their chances.
The Wanderers started well, passing the ball easily through the opposition ranks. However, they were unable to convert their superiority into goals.

The visitors increased their lead - through Gary Andrew Bliss after the break, before Wanderers pulled two back through Carl Fadhel and Steve Owen.
As Wanderers pressed for an equaliser, they were hit with a sucker punch, scored by Trevor Long and the fifth followed with time running out.
Wanderers visit lowly Bedwell this Saturday, hoping for some Christmas cheer.
