UCL Division One
Huntingdon Town 2 Thrapston Town 4
HUNTINGDON now sit rock bottom of the table after their nightmare start to the season continued.
The visitors held the advantage at the break after scoring on five minutes, but manager Darren Young's half-time team talk saw his side emerge with more purpose.
Inside two minutes Ryan Spencer was on hand just inside the box and smashed a shot past the keeper to make it 1-1 - and with the home side in the ascendency Paul Nevill gave Town the lead with a strike from 15 yards.
The lead was short-lived when two minutes later Jack Wisniewski restored the balance with a stunning strike that left Carl Mackney with no chance.

Huntingdon continued to press and the midfield did more than enough to make chances for a third for the hosts.
The match turned dramatically in favour of the visitors when a disputed penalty was given to Thrapston after players challenged for a 50/50 ball.
Ben Morgan stepped up to grab the third from the spot and within five minutes a dejected Town allowed Marcus Keirle to seal the points with the fourth.
"I felt we deserved a point," said Young. "We didn't turn up for the first 45 minutes but did more than enough in the first 30 minutes of the second until decisions went against us."
Town visit Leiston in the FA Vase on Saturday.
