A NINE-goal thriller provided an entertaining end to the season for Huntingdon Rowdies U9 as they defeated Godmanchester 5-4.

Goalkeeper Jack Tate saved two Godmanchester penalties as Rowdies ended their season in style, delighting joint managers Ollie Brown and Keith Tate.

Huntingdon dominated early on and took the lead through a Godmanchester own goal. George Smith, Jamie Harrold and Callum Brown then fired in goals and it seemed Rowdies would cruise to victory.

However, Rovers battled back and managed to level the scores at 4-4.
