TWO Andrew Bennett penalties gave Tydd St Mary FC a 3-2 victory in a competitive Boston and District Division Two clash at Friskney.

Tydd led after 13 minutes when Richard Smith drilled a low corner in from the left and Kane Milne poked home from close range.

Frinskey equalised form a corner and it was 1-1 at the break.

Smith was sent off for Tydd for two bookable offences but Tydd restored their lead with a Bennett spot kick after Ash Godfrey was fouled.

With 15 minutes to go Godfrey was again fouled in the area and Bennett scored again. The referee sent a Friskney player off for a second booking after arguing the penalty decision.

A minute into stoppage time, Friskney chipped a long ball over the Tydd defence to score a consolation goal.
