Buxton pick up all 3 points in Lincolnshire

Buxton secured a crucial 3-2 victory against Boston United, earning a valuable three points on the road.

Early on, Boston dominated possession, with Jai Rowe forcing a low save from Joe Young with a driven effort.

Young was called into action again just two minutes later when Jimmy Knowles' cross found Kelsey Mooney, but the goalkeeper stood strong to deny him from close range.

Despite Boston's pressure, it was Buxton who broke the deadlock in the 25th minute. Dylan Mottley-Henry, played through by Jak McCourt, dribbled past the defense and struck a shot against the post, which deflected into the net for a 1-0 lead.

Shortly after, there were several bookings within a five-minute span. Knowles and Mooney received yellow cards for fouls on Connor Kirby, with McCourt also booked.

Kirby and Tommy Elliott were cautioned as well, the latter for pulling down his former teammate Sam Smart.

Boston continued to push for an equalizer, with Keaton Ward's effort from the edge of the box tipped over by Young.

The hosts started the second half strongly, with Michael Bostwick's 20-yard shot deflected behind for a corner. Rowe then rose highest to head Ward's corner into the net, leveling the score at 1-1.

Buxton responded positively, and substitute Martin Woods inadvertently put the ball into his own net, giving Buxton a 2-1 lead.

Despite Boston's efforts, they fell further behind as Kirby's lofted ball found De Girolamo, who was brought down in the box. He converted the penalty, making it 3-1 to Buxton in the 83rd minute.

Knowles managed to pull one back for Boston with a looping goal, making it 3-2 as the game approached added time.

However, Buxton held on to secure all three points, bouncing back from their defeat to Darlington on Saturday.
