THE Bob Lucas Stadium faithful saw thrills and spills aplenty in a pulsating 3-3 draw with Hampshire rivals AFC Totton.

After four high-scoring contests between the sides last term, goals were always on the cards and this game was never likely to disappoint with five first-half strikes in just 22 minutes of gripping action.

The Stags seized on a defensive blunder to edge in front through ex-Terra James Coutts before quickfire strikes from Scott Walker and Dan Smith gave Weymouth a short-lived 2-1 lead.

Totton immediately hit back through Richard Gillespie, who netted twice before the half-time whistle, but then the hosts earned themselves a point with a second strike from Smith midway through the second half.
