The home side did not roll over and at half-time the game was tied at 1-1. Inspirational skipper Liam Heffer opened the scoring but a rashly conceded penalty by makeshift full-back Neil Given put Lemsford back on level terms.
After the break Wanderers settled into their pass-and-move style with young Ed Frost, veteran Tom Coates and left winger Mike Bray pulling the strings in midfield. Goals soon followed with Man of the Match Heffer, completing his hat-trick, joined by Coates, Frost, Jason Ling, Alex Vaughan and super sub James Elliott.
