WOODCOTE/STOKE ROW got back to winning ways as they ran out 4-2 winners at TAPLOW UNITED in the John Dell Senior Division.
Woodcote started well and Ryan Corbett had the ball in the net within five minutes, only to see his effort ruled out for offside.
Chances came thick and fast with Frank Dillon going close after good work by his brother, Jake and skipper, Jim Hancock missing two headed opportunities.
Despite constant Woodcote pressure, it was Taplow who broke the deadlock with a goal on the break and they held this lead until half-time.
Within a minute of the restart Woodcote were on level terms. From a corner Andy Bullett was left unmarked at the far post and was able to pull the ball down and slot it home.
The visitors took the lead soon after as Frank Dillon drove to the by-line and fired in a low cross which a Taplow defender sliced into his own net.
Woodcote were now firmly in control and the third goal came after a good move down the left wing saw Ryan Corbett released into the box to finish well.
A poor piece of defensive play saw Taplow pull a second goal back but the visitors restored their two goal advantage minutes later when Bullett picked the ball up just outside the area and beat one man before firing past the keeper.
