Two second half penalties from Phil Ormrod rescued a point for Sherborne Town as the Zebras clawed back a two-goal deficit at Winterbourne United.

Ormrod and the home side’s Rob Siver each scored hat-tricks as the points were shared in the Western League Premier Division clash.

Sherborne made a bright start and took a deserved lead when Ormrod opened his account as he fired home following good work from Raith Plant and Haydn Hodges. But the lead didn’t last long as Silver latched onto a poor header from Hodges and prodded the ball past Zebras goalkeeper Jamie Beale to level the score.

The momentum was with the home side and Winterbourne were awarded a penalty when Beale was adjudged to have hauled down a Winterbourne striker in the box. Siver stepped up and found the net to give his side their first lead of the match.

Things got even worse for the visitors after the interval when Beale’s weak punched clearance following a corner fell to Siver, who found the net with a looping head to seal his hat-trick.

Sherborne were handed a lifeline when Ormrod was felled in the box and the striker got back on his feet to slot home the spot kick. Moments later, the Zebras were awarded another penalty when a dangerous ball into the box was handled by a defender - allowing Ormrod to complete his hat-trick and rescue a point for the Dorset side.
