Two quickfire goals from Rhain Hellawell and Anointed Chukwu put them 2-0 up within five minutes of the first half before George Webster got the away side’s third on the half-hour mark.

Seven minutes later, Joe Davis pulled a goal back for the hosts by heading into an empty net when the keeper lost the flight of an incoming corner, and then Widnes’ Jay Roberts put through his own net to put Nantwich back in the game.

The Dabbers completed the first comeback of the game when Valdemar Schousboe made it 3-3 by hitting a brilliant shot into the far corner on the 44th minute.

On the stroke of half time, Nantwich were in front after a mishit cross spun towards the back post and Callum Saunders was there to finish.

However the goals certainly didn’t stop there, Callum Saunders lifted the ball over keeper Owen Wheeler from just inside the area after a lovely through ball from Luke Walsh.

It was game on again from the 74th minute when Widnes’ Jay Roberts cut onto his weaker left foot and curled a beauty into the top left corner.

10 minutes later, the away side incredibly get the second comeback of the game by making it 5-5 thanks to Rhain Hellawell.

The 116 fans in attendance didn’t know what to expect would happen in the remaining time for the game, whether a winner would be found or if it would go to penalties.

A stunning end to the game saw Widnes re-take the lead when Michael Burke hit a screamer with seconds remaining.
