Pagham burst out the traps and could easily have been a couple of goals up in the first ten minutes, but the ball just wouldn’t run for them when it mattered. They hit the front in this one-sided game in the 25th minute with a low drive from around 25 yards from Jamie Carroll.
Although having the lion's share of possession they found it hard to increase the lead, with Jake Heryet hitting the bar and another Pagham header being hacked off the line. So they had to settle for a dominant 1-0 lead at half-time.
The second half started the same way as the first but try as they might Pagham just couldn’t squeeze out another goal. The Mullets rarely troubled the Lions defence, a fact underlined by ‘keeper Lewis Boughton only having one real save to make in the match.
Time after time Pagham attacked Arundel’s penalty area until, well into added on time a smart run and cross by sub Ryan Morey was tapped home by Jack Langford to secure the win.
