In another match, goals by Kayne Baker (6’) and Nataniel James (8’) gave Eastern FA a quick start and they were off to a 2-0 lead within the opening 10 minutes. But Central roared back, scoring the next three goals to lead 3-2 at the half. East rescued a point when James got his second goal of the match, just two minutes into the second half.
