CHARLIE Owen was a three-goal hero as Stafford Rangers Stripes under-11s shared eight goals with Brewood Juniors.
The Stripes battled back from 3-1 down to earn a share of the spoils, in what was a thoroughly entertaining game.
Brewood were quick out of the blocks and they took a first minute lead. Owen levelled with a fine shot from the edge of the area.
Before the break, Brewood restored the lead and added a third goal from the penalty spot. On the stroke of half-time, Owen netted his second of the match with a fierce drive from a tight angle.
Toby Burrows was outstanding in goal for Stripes and he saved his side again, before Owen levelled matters and so completed his treble.
Yet again, Brewood regained the lead with what looked like being the winner, until a cross from Owen was deflected into the net by a Brewood defender for a share of the points.
