CHIPPENHAM & DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISION TWO: Southwick wander to top spot
10:38am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
WITH BOTH FC Buscots and Miller Sports A without a league fixture, Southwick Wanderers took advantage of their rivals inactivity as they claimed a 5-4 win at home to AFC Avellinos to move to the top of Division Two.
Southwick were given the perfect start on three minutes when Jack Parker rifled home from close range.
The hosts had the chance to make it 2-0 but missed out when Pete Spong’s penalty was saved by keeper Sean Davis.
The miss was later forgotten as Ferris Lamrabet converted a Craig Sheppard cross on 35 minutes to give Southwick a 2-0 interval lead.
After the break, Southwick were awarded their second penalty of the morning and with the spot-kick duties handed to Lamrabet, he made no mistake from 12 yards as he scored his second and Southwick's third of the game.
But Avellinos then staged a comeback as they reduced the arrears firstly through Ben Butterfield and then Sam Jones before Butterfield slotted home his second of the game to square things up at three apiece.
With 88 minutes on the clock, Jason Rose thought he had won it for Southwick when he headed home for 4-3 but back came Avellinos to make it 4-4, with Callum Upchurch finding the net.
The excitement had yet finished and with virtually the last kick of the game, Lamrabet struck to complete his hat-trick and seal a 5-4 win for the hosts.
Potterne CFC 1 Sutton Benger 3
James Weston and Will Stevens set Sutton Benger up for their latest win with first half goals against Potterne CFC.
Ben House may have reduced the deficit for Potterne but it was a brief respite as Nathan Farrell, with his first ever league goal, completed Benger’s win.
Potterne did have the chance to make things interesting but Jamie Bayes saw his penalty saved by debutant keeper Colin Hayward, and with that miss went the home team's hopes of getting anything from the game.
