Lori Borbely struck twice to earn Boston Town a dramatic stoppage-time victory over rivals Sleaford.
But the game was marred by an injury to debutant keeper Callum Bastock, who needed hospital treatment following a collision with teammate Ollie Pinner.
Sixteen-year-old Bastock - the son of former Boston United stopper Paul - was making his first appearance for Town.
And he couldn’t ask for a tougher induction into senior football, leaving Eslaforde Park in an ambulance.
He suffered a cut lip, bleeding mouth and suspected concussion - but is now out of hospital.
Ironically, Pinner then replaced his teammate between the sticks, just in time for a frantic end to the clash.
In the 86th minute, Borbely put Town ahead, only for Kris Jones to respond immediately with a strike from the halfway line.
Boston thought they would steal the points with a 90th-minute penalty, but Andy Hewitt palmed away Josh Ford’s spot kick.
However, the Poachers did grab all three points an amazing nine minutes into time added on, Borbely finding the net following Ben Good’s knock down.
