However, it was the hosts who got things underway. Hornchurch’s Charlie Stimson fired home with his left foot in the 25th minute, following a corner.
Worthing responded just 6 minutes from a corner of their own, skipper Aarran Racine bundled the ball home; claiming his second goal in consecutive games.
After getting the equaliser, Worthing were full of momentum heading into the second half. Ollie Pearce made the most of the building pressure, converting from the spot after winning a penalty just 10 minutes into the second half.
The game was sealed as The Mackerel Men made the most of their set-piece ability. Jesse Starkey claimed a second assist of the game from another corner, as this time Starkey found Racine’s defensive partner Joel Colbran at the back post, who headed home to seal all three points.
