The game was closer than the score suggests because Wanderers moved 5-4 ahead when Dan Laxton scored at the end of the second period. It was 6-5 after three to Caledonia, who then took charge of the final quarter, scoring through Chris Campbell (2), Finlay Nesbitt (2) and Harry Gray.
Sutton & Cheam staged a dramatic fightback at Haberdashers to steal a 9-8 victory over Watford. Sutton were 7-4 in arrears early in the third and still 8-5 behind at the start of the last. Then Ryan Symington and Ali Wakeling netted from man-up opportunities; Carlo Diegone converted a penalty; and, just one second from the final whistle, Wakeling finished off another man-up chance for the winner.
Four goals without reply in the third period – by Will Middleton, Oliver Stanley, Richard Waller and Will Rayson – set up Cheltenham’s 14-10 win against Portobello, who led 8-7 at the halfway stage. Polytechnic dropped a point for the first time – held 9-9 by Exeter, who had been 7-4 ahead at one point. Cian Mulcahy eventually put Poly 9-8 ahead three minutes from the end, only for Cody Plumridge to equalise.
