MEPAL maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a battling performance against a skilful side.

Sports went 2-0 down but dug deep.

George Rayner's fine finish from an acute angle made it 2-1 and Jacob Waters equalised after a trademark mazy run.

James Knox marshalled the home side's defence magnificently with Joe-Joe Corlito also in fine form.

The introduction of Serifo Balde was to prove decisive, Sports' new powerhouse midfielder converted Harrison Jones' cross to give the hosts the lead and Jones completed the scoring after a counter attack late on.

Mepal Sports: Serifo Balde, George Rayner, Harrison Jones, Kassem Silvain, James Knox, Joe-Joe Corlito, Daniel Oakland, Jacob Waters.
