In a classic game of two halves, Mildenhall dominated the first period. In the very first minute, Simpson missed the hosts penalty after a handball on the visitor's goal line.
Mildenhall, after a lot of pressure, did eventually take the lead after 14 minutes when Miles found Hammond in the clear and he crossed for Docking to score.

Little was seen of Sherborne and the home side deservedly went further in front five minutes before the break when again Hammond latched onto a poor clearance from the visiting keeper and he put Docking through to score his second.
After the break, Docking was then injured and replaced by Heron and that changed the complexity of the game because it was the visitors who then dominated the second period.
Sherbourne won their penalty for a clumsy challenge by Hering after 63 minutes, but it was well saved by Nower. However, the visitor's got the goal they deserved after 70 minutes when Caines waltzed down the left, cut in past Hering and floated the ball over Nower.
The rest of the game saw stout defending by the home side with Eady and Rush outstanding.
