Once again I let someone else chose my destination today and the game pulled out the hat by my daughter proved to be a real cracker with the feeling at full-time that I witnessed a ‘league-game giantkilling’. Division leaders Peterborough Northern Star, looking to record their 20th consecutive league and cup win, fell behind to two first-half goals from visitors Cogenhoe before halving the deficit just before the interval. Star pushed hard for an equaliser until the visitors added a vital late third goal to claim the points to end an amazing run.
