An even opening first 45’ minutes concluded with both sides level. Few chances for either of the two Ismithian Premier Division sides, lead to a deadlock at the break.
Worthing’s best opportunity of the first half came through youngster: Maxwell Bartlett. The Rebels’ number 10 plucked a long ball out of the sky, from Will Seager – who had a solid game; impressing with his distribution out from the back. Bartlett composed himself, before firing a left-footed effort at goal, which narrowly flew wide from a tight angle.
The second half was a lot more eventful than the first. Both sides searched for a winner and Worthing eventually found it, with just two minutes left to play.
Faith in the youth paid of for The Rebels. Owen Wordsell off the bench, blasted home into the roof of the net from close range- following up on Frankie Perry’s strike, which was well-saved by The K’s keeper.
Overall, a top display from The Mackerel Men, who thoroughly deserved the victory. A heavily rotated side, with a good mix of youth proved they could not only compete – but dominate against a very strong Kingstonian side.
