Their only goal of the first half arrived as Clarke finished a move involving Means.

Despite some magnificent saves from Nasar, Pelicans went in 3-1 down at half-time.

The turning point came after the break when a sweet hit from Means was dived on to and deflected neatly into the corner by Allen.

Pelicans' third goal came again from Clarke, but the key to the success in the second half, were the performances of young quartet Hipkin, Grimmet, Maud and Lloyd.

The winning goal arrived after Allen slotted the ball through to Maud who drifted right to pass a defender before rifling home from an acute angle.
