Lancing edge Arundel in seven-goal thriller
REPORT COURTESY OF LEWIS MASON ‘WORTHING GAZETTE’ THANK YOU
A superb second-half display saw Lancing come out on top in an SCFL Premier Division thriller with Arundel at Culver Road last night.
Lancing were two goals down at the break but turned things around to run out 4-3 victors.
It proved to be an action-packed evening which started with Mullets taking the lead after 12 minutes.
Returning Arundel striker Ben Gray got it to hand the visitors an early lead.
Daniel Momah got his first of the night seven minutes later to make it 1-1.
There was a long stoppage soon after as Lancing goalkeeper was forced off following a nasty collision with an Arundel player. Ben Gray then restored the visitors’ lead ten minutes before the break with Harry Russell making it 3-1 deep in first half stoppage time.
Lancers were left with it all to do but completed a fine turn around after the interval.
Momah bagged his and Lancing’s second of the evening just past the hour, which sparked the home side into life.
Ex Mullet Brad Lewis levelled things up at 3-3 with 18 minutes left to play and Lancers were now in the ascendancy.
There was still time for Lancing to grab a winner, completing a thrilling turnaround. Matt Daniel netted the winner as Lancers ran out 4-3 winners in what was a thriller.
