Faygate 1 Lavant 0
The league leaders Faygate picked up a further 3 points in this evenly balanced game with a goal one minute before halftime.
One individual defensive error let striker Ben Friar send the home side in ahead at half time.
The second half saw Lavant edging it for the majority of the game. Captain Matt Stevens headed over from a Mike Neville cross early on. Though Tom Routley came close from a fine Faygate build up on 52 minutes.
Lavant’s Mike Bartley glancing header brought a fine stop from keeper Lee Ames 7 minutes later.
A Lavant substitution and a change to 3 up front in 82 minute increased the visitor’s pressure but not enough to grab the deserved equaliser.
Lavant Manager David Parker declared at the end “this was our best performance of this season. One mind, one compact unit. It bodes well. I’m delighted”.
