Previoulsy The Baton had scored with their first penalty to tie Mick Cluskey's opener, but had twice hit the cross-bar in reply to successful kicks from Keith Thomas and Phil Lythgoe. Rick Russell had a chance to win it to make it 4-1, but his effort slipped passed the keepers right hand post leaving Paul Greene to claim the glory with this save to win 3-1 on penalties.
Adam Price Equaliser
|Adam Price (far right) returned as a 2nd half substitute to score within ten minutes of coming on to cancel out The Baton's first half goal. 1-1. |
Rising high above the Baton defence, he directs his header just inside the keepers right hand post. The cross coming from an excellent penetrating free kick from Keith Thomas just inside the Baton half.

|Adam Price scores his and Rovers second mid way through 1st half of extra time to put Harpenden 2-1 in front. |
Price turns away in celebration having just lifted the ball over the legs of the advancing keeper to sneak the ball in at the keepers right hand post.
