Recap from Aggborough as Harriers are beaten on home soil again…

Ashley Hemmings in action against King's Lynn {Pic Ade Hoskins]

HARRIERS twice led at Aggborough but were still soundly beaten 4-2 by King’s Lynn Town.

The home side had taken the lead through a well-worked and smartly-taken goal from Ashley Hemmings, before the visitors swiftly levelled through Henderson’s close-range header, all with less than ten minutes gone.

A topsy-turvy, entertaining first half continued to flow when Harriers re-took the lead on 24 minutes, a fantastic strike by Richard Peniket arrowing in off the post. Dec Weeks then hit the post, but  Lynn again were level around ten minutes later when Rory McAuley was gifted a headed goal.

Any hopes that the second period would offer a repeat of the end-to-end affair of the first were dashed inside five minutes of the restart when Marriott slotted home from the edge of the area, the visitors well and truly beginning to dominate.

Six past the hour, a Jarvis goal from close range at a corner made it 4-2 and put the tie well and truly to bed, with the Linnets well on top for the rest of the night as they drew a string of decent saves from goalkeeper Cameron Gregory as they sought to extend their lead.

Barring a Weeks effort wide at 2-2, Harriers mustered precious little in front of goal after the break and were made to pay a heavy price for twice allowing their lead to slip.
