Daylesford and Hepburn United Soccer Club's seniors played round two of the season at the weekend.
In division one, the Saints squandered early opportunities and had some keeping and defensive errors which saw them down 4-1 to the Forest Rangers by the break.
Making up for earlier mistakes and after a reshuffle, the Saints turned the game on its head in the second half thanks to star players Owen Turbitt, Jordy Barnes and Bear Hackenburger.
Conceding an early goal, the Saints kicked four unanswered goals to bring the game back on level terms and were pressing hard for a win until the full time whistle blew with a draw of 5-5.
Owen Turbitt scored three goals, while Hiroshi Matsuda scored one, as did Jack Nulty.
Best on ground were Jordy Barnes, Owen Turbitt and James Milesi.
Meanwhile division two took on Vic Park at home. The latter made the most of opportunities with the score 1-0 at half time.
An early second half penalty to the Saints through a dive by Ivan Carter, converted by club stalwart Shanka Hackberger, pulled the Saints back into the contest to the even score of 1-1.
Despite the Saints' best defence, Vic Park scored a second goal to win 2-1.
Best on ground were Brendan Patterson, Richard Malter and Ivan Carter.
