PETER MORRISON TROPHY ROUND THREE
TEMPLE FORTUNE A 3 SOUTHGATE HARMEN B 2

A Paul Walker double plus one from Brett Stead helped Temple Fortune A become the first team to reach round four in a five-goal thriller against Harmen B.

Walker put Fortune ahead from the penalty spot and things went from bad to worse for Harmen who had their keeper sent off towards the end of the first half following two cautionable offences.

Strangely this seemed to help Harmen who then started to get on top and were rewarded with their own penalty late in the half which they scored.

Fortune started the second half poorly but as the half wore on, their numerical advantage helped and Walker scored his second from a corner - his sixth goal in five matches.

Stead scored a third before a late Harmen goal ensured a nervy last five minutes.

Harmen's goals came through Ben Rosenblatt and Paul Stein.

Fortune boss Lee Fegan said: "Overall, I'm pleased we are still in the competition. We dominated the first half hour but complacency seemed to set in and our performance dropped slightly.

"However, we took control again in the second half and we were worthy winners."
