fly again from 30 yards and a good ball in from Josh Burchell flew just in front of Austin four min­utes later. The vis­i­tors were thrown a life­line in the 39th minute when ref­eree Mick O’Keefe pointed to the penalty spot for a nudge by In­victa cap­tain Micheal Everitt on Per­ci­val af­ter a John Lans­dale cross. Lans­dale him­self re­duced the deficit from the spot-kick. James Everitt had the ball in the net early in the sec­ond half but, for a sec­ond suc­ces­sive home Satur­day, was de­nied by an as­sis­tant ref­eree’s flag which had long been up. Jimmy Jack­son hit a free-kick from the edge of the penalty area over the bar on the hour af­ter a foul on Burchell and In­victa re­stored their two-goal ad­van­tage in the 63rd minute when right-back Vin­cent got for­ward to con­vert a deep cross from Burchell. In­victa cre­ated fur­ther chances as Micheal Everitt headed over a 66th minute Jack­son cor­ner and, soon af­ter, Jack­son’s shot was well saved by Adams. Lans­dale had looked the vis­i­tors’ main threat and his 81st-minute shot from the edge of the penalty area flashed just past the far post.
