Thaxted Rangers 3 Melbourn 2
Thaxted Rangers came from behind to defeat Melbourn on Saturday in the BIS League Division 2A.
Thaxted started off well hitting both the post and crossbar, but it was the visitors who took the lead when a defensive mix-up allowed a Melbourn striker to race clear and bury the ball into the bottom left hand corner.
On the stroke of half-time Melbourn extended their lead whilst the Thaxted players were appealing for offside.
