Daryl Hall battles to get to the ball first

Lavant served up their worst game of the season amidst swirling March winds.

Despite the homeside making all the running early on, neither side could string more than three passes together. Hunston produced the first example of interpassing and opened the scoring as a result through Paul Attwood on 11 minutes.

This sprang lack lustre Lavant into action and a spell of better quality passing led to midfielder Justin Walsh firing Lavant level from 25 yards on the half hour.

Whilst Lavant tried to play a better passing game after the restart, they were bereft of fight. Nevertheless, they incurred the sympathy of the crowd when, having committed a foul on the edge of their area on 56 mins, the referee allowed the free-kick instantly and Lewis Weller stroked it into the net whilst Lavant looked on incredulously.

Martin Cannon added Hunston’s third 11 mins later with a strong driven ball from the right of the box.

The visitors were strong in the tackle, worked hard and were well organised. But for Lavant it will be a day they will want to forget.
