BEN Rhydding hosted Neston in an eventful and erratic game which ended in a 3-3 tie.

Poor marking and loose concentration from Rhydding saw Neston take a 1-0 lead. Neston made it 2-0 minutes later with a free player in the circle.

Rhydding replied with a corner from Myles Locke, but it was disallowed. He repeated this shortly after to get the score back to 2-1.

Will Musgrave levelled when he scored from a corner. With five minutes left, Rhydding’s earned a penalty, which Musgrave converted to give the home side a 3-2 lead.

Desperate defending drew a penalty stroke for Neston in the dying embers of the game as the visitors claimed a draw.
