Aslockton And Orston in seventh heaven after 4-3 win over Southwell City in the Notts Senior League
A seven-goal thriller was played out at the War Memorial Park on Saturday, but despite Southwell City returning to form with a win 2-0 over AFC Dunkirk the previous week, it was the visitors, Aslockton And Orston, who left with three points.
The hosts took the lead in the seventh minute through Blair Bryant, and from then on, the tempo was set.
Southwell had to wait just six more minutes for their second, as Stewart Gill’s effort was deflected in.
By the 23rd minute, Aslockton were back in the game.
Pierce Hallam ran clear of the Southwell back four and slotted the ball under the keeper.
The action-packed first-half was rounded off by a Julian Joachim penalty.
Joachim completed the visitors’ comeback in the 65th minute, before Lewis Bonham profited from a lapse of concentration in Southwell’s defence to make it four.
Calum Law’s free-kick on the 75th minute gave Southwell hope of a comeback, but it wasn’t to be as the hosts dropped to second-place after Stapleford Town came away from Attenborough with a 5-0 win.
Ed Hodgson’s double for Bingham Town put his side in the driver’s seat during their 6-2 win over Bilborough Town.
James Archer, Mike Jepps, Lewis Ray and Bingham’s second top-scorer Tom Spencer were also on target.
Radcliffe Olympic blew a 3-1 lead against Gedling Southbank, as the division’s bottom-side hit three late goals to earn their second win of the season, 4-3.
