Cleeve Town 4
Wrington Res 3
Having won against the same opponents at home last week, the visitors started brightly and with Louis Louvais running the show from just behind the strikers, they dominated the early stages.
A typically battling run and challenge by Adam Caufield won an attacking free kick and Joe Moore delivered a perfect cross for Louvais to score, but Cleeve hit back to equalise.
Wrington responded with more good football and captain Holland led the way with a strong run, inter-changing passes with Thomas and Faulkner before beating the keeper. Wrington deserved their lead, but leading into half time, they let it slip as the hosts equalised again.
After the break, good play by Nick Curtis, Callum Briggs, Joe Moore and Paul Faulkner, set up Tommy Johnson to tap home.
Cleeve equalised once more when a long ball was headed into the net and with minutes remaining, a long-range strike gave the hosts victory.
