An 84th minute penalty from John Townsend decided this hard-fought tie in Nurney to make it four games on the bounce unbeaten.

The second half was again a hard battle with chances wasted at both ends. The decisive moment came late on when Colin Townsend was upended in the area and John Townsend converted the spot kick.

Tops for Nurney were Jack Rowan, Rian Farrell, Tom Murphy and Philip Murphy.
