The Lifeboatman had the better of the early exchanges and it was no surprise to see Stanton waltz through the centre of defence to open the scoring. Wooldridge then cut in from the left but his shot was beaten away by the Acle keeper.
Acle replied when Jamie Smith was hauled down and after dusting himself off, scored from the spot for 1-1. Acle almost went ahead when Fisher found Warminger at the far post’ but his header was well saved.
The teams turned round 1-1 before the dangerous Warminger crashed the ball home from way out left and from what seemed an impossible angle. Acle were beginning to dominate, and when the lively Smith found Warminger he presented a golden chance to Diggins whose weak shot was saved in the home goal.
However, the winger quickly put matters right after exchanging passes with Kelf this time he tucked the ball away for 3-1. It was all Acle as McKensie thudded his header against the bar, before throwing his body at the ball to prevent Caister reducing the deficit.
Brilliant pace by Smith set up his name sake but his shot cleared the bar by some distance. Caister got back into the game when from a raid down their right the ball was unkindly turned into his own net by Wiley for3-2. Jamie Smith was the Acle man of the match as his searing pace almost put the A’s two goals clear.
Smith then set up Diggins but his shot lacked control as he shot over with just the keeper to beat. As the game drifted into the last 5 minutes Caister used the slope to camp in the Acle half and with time running out McQueen headed home for a share of the spoils in a game that Acle more than deserved all three points but finished 3-3.
