A second-half fightback earned battling Upperby Park a 4-3 win over Moorhouse in a Carlisle City Sunday league second division clash which enabled them to climb away from the danger zone.
Dan Gardner’s strike and Matt Dowell’s penalty put Moorhouse in command at the break but Joel Vilchez reduced the leeway and Danny Black netted to square matters for Park.
Then they turned the game on its head, going 4-2 up with further goals by Black and substitute Mark Harding before Moorhouse pulled it back to 4-3 after Simon Mounsey was brought down in the box which earned a red card for Mark Sykes and Dowell made no mistake from his second penalty kick.
The game between Carlisle Ex-Servicemen and Pippins ended goal-less.
The latter carved out the better chances in the first half, helped by the industrious Jay Smith but found keeper Phil Harden in tremendous form and Phil Hetherington solid in defence.
Ex came more into the game later on and Pippins were indebted to keeper Lee Graham who pulled off three tremendous saves, the best being from Chris Graham’s volley.
