It was all Park at the start of the first-half and they went 1-0 up after some great skill from Tom Rolls, who set up Ryan Harris to tap in. Although two minutes later it was 1-1 after Congresbury beat the offside trap to nutmeg Locking goalkeeper Jake Farrow.

In the second half, Harry Hornigold went close again, but sent his shot over the bar. Rolls got a deserved goal after a pass from James Bromley. Congresbury continued to pressure and after Joe Pearson was robbed in midfield, the resulting shot deflected off Bromley and looped over Farrow for the leveller.
