Baker's winner is enough to see Iron to victory
IRON Acton stepped up their bid for Senior Division honours after twice coming from behind to snatch a dramatic 3-2 victory at Hallen A with a last-gasp winner.
Goals from Frankie Vaughan and Luke Burnam put the hosts in front during an early period of supremacy in the game.
But the Irons hit back through Jordan Moore (penalty), Josh Donaldson and Ollie Baker, who celebrated his promotion from the reserves with the late winner.
"We were on top early on but ran our of legs", said Hallen's manager Liam Greening.

Meanwhile, the Iron's secretary Adam Taylor felt that his team were worthy winners after a disciplined display.
Hambrook took the lead three times with strikes by Matthew Wallace, Alex Cox and Tom Smyth in the first half, away to Talbot Knowle United.
But the home side bounced back to win 6-3 to boost their Division Two promotion hopes.
Mark Badman and Mark Billericay both notched hat-tricks for the hosts to spare the blushes for Richard Griffin, who missed a penalty in the first half.
"We played well in the second half and moved up to third in the table," said Talbot's secretary Mark Dite, but Hambrook's secretary Dave Davies was disappointed at the result after his side's fine first half display.
Steve Wright fired Seymour Reserves into the lead at home to Bradley Stoke, then completed his double with a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw after Craig Porter and Lucas Entoundi put the visitors in front.
AEK Boco A extended their lead to four points at the head of Division Three, thanks to a 2-1 win away to Olveston Reserves, for whom Scott Reeves replied to a double from Jack Webb.
A 5-2 home success against Patchway North End kept Frampton Reserves on course for minor honours with Robbie Warren and Liam Downer both striking twice to add to an own goal deflection.
Goals from seasoned campaigner Declan Colton and Paul Evans levelled the scores at 2-2 for the visitors whose secretary Ben Thomas admitted that the team was struggling after losing several players but would be rebuilding for next season.
Fry Club B joined the leading group in Division Five with a comfortable 3-1 home victory against Bendix Reserves, with Ryan Auchterlonie (2) and Tom Pitt on target while Adi Parker netted a consolation in reply.
Adverse pitch conditions caused the postponements of the remaining games, causing further problems for match secretary Terry Upton.
All the fixtures in both the Avon and Downs League were called off because of either a frozen or waterlogged pitch.
