Wilderpark returned from a visit to West Kingsdown empty handed after going down 6-4 to high flying Kingsdown Racers.
The same old frailties returned in the closing ten minutes. Leading 4-3 the Park looked to be on the way to a deserved victory until, first a long throw in from the right found the head of a Kingsdown forward and the ball entered the net inside the right upright. Another high ball caused panic in the defence and now the hosts led 5-4.
Finally in the dying seconds the Park failed to defend a corner taken on the left and again the ball entered the net following a header.
This after the Park had taken an early lead through a fine strike by Andy Streeter which entered the net inside the left upright. Kingsdown then fought back taking a 2-1 lead into the half time break.
Into the second half Streeter levelled the scores and then a brace of goals by young Billy Muckle, both of which were outstanding strikes, put the Park into the lead.
With hindsight the game may have been lost by the withdrawal of Jim Hagon whose asset is winning aerial balls which caused so many problems in the latter stages.
