Huntingdon Town 4-1 Thrapston Town ---
HUNTINGDON Town halted a run of five games without a win by taking all three points against high-flying Thrapston.
Town have been struggling for goals this season, but re-found their scoring touch on Saturday, ramming home four to give co-managers Al Lenihan and Pat O'Keefe something to smile about. However, it took a Dwayne Rankin double in the final five minutes to secure the points.

O'Keefe said: "Brett made a significant difference to our performance, and we have Ian Fovargue due back shortly. We can now look forward to four very difficult fixtures knowing we will have a side capable of taking points from those games.
O'Keefe also said the club hope to sign a new midfield player before Christmas to improve their attacking options.
Town opened their account against Thrapston courtesy of a Chris Walton own goal five minutes in. But they could not consolidate their lead, and Thrapston nicked a goal back just before half-time.
But the visitors' buoyant mood was scotched by Chris Brown who put Town back in front on 44 minutes.
The second half was a battle for supremacy with both teams having chances to score, but things remained in the balance until Rankin doubled the Town tally with goals in the 86th and 90th minutes.
