Lancing United 4 O&G United 1
Brighton league table toppers came to Croshaw today and Lancing United dominated for 90% of the game.
Going 4-4-2 United brought Chris Phillips back in with the young Sam Gunn partnering Sooty in midfield and Greg Luke moving to right wing for the injured Steve Bird.
United went 1-0 up after 2 minutes as the old duo linked up again as Sooty whipped in a corner for Thommo to power home. United then fell asleep and conceeded a weak own goal for 1-1 2 minutes later....
As the half wore on United looked the most likely and with a minute left to play, Souter played an exquisite 40 yard through ball to Hall who shrugged off his marker to finish with aplomb for a 2-1 United lead at half time.
The next goal would be key and United gained it on 60 minutes with a fine passing move finishing with Sooty getting a hat trick of assists laying in Philly to tap home from 6 yards out.
The final goal saw Philly grab a brace on his return to the starting line up after a flick on from Sean Page.
Good game and United seem to be getting a bit of their mojo back at a decent time. If only the Xmas break wasn't just around the corner!
MOM went to Chris Phillips for his all round play and 2 goals.
Also, congrats to Dave Rowlands and his Beeding boys
Good to see a young side pushing the top boys and making a real go of it at the top of the league. Can't wait for the local derbys
Form is temporary, class is permanent...
