Avisford Youth 5 Rustington Otters Red 1
Avisford earned their first win of the season with a dominant win over Rustington at Rose Green.
They could have taken the lead inside the opening 30 seconds, Matt Kill beat the Otters offside trap to find himself one on one with the keeper, but his shot was straight at a grateful Rustington No1.
The home side took the lead 17 minutes in. Kill’s shot was charged down, the ball rebounded to Fin Brian whose sublime lob went past the keeper into the top corner.
The game was effectively ended as a contest just before half-time by a devastating Avisford spell of three goals in the space of two minutes.
Damian Wasowski’s pass found Brian, and his ball split the Rustington defence to release Charlie Hunter, who made no mistake with a low shot.
Almost straight away, another Avisford attack resulted in Hunter smashing home from close range. Then Rustington’s high line was exposed again, MoM Hunter the gleeful recipient of Kill’s through ball to seal his first Avisford hat-trick.
Otters, to their credit, came out for the second half with purpose. They pulled a goal back just after the restart, Tom Johnson’s volley from 20 yards flying past the dive of Klaudiusz Piasecki.
Any lingering Avisford nerves were settled when referee Paul Senior pointed to the penalty spot after a Rustington defender handled in the area. Kill stepped up and made no mistake, sending the keeper the wrong way.
The away side kept battling away and thought they had scored late on, but Sammy Copeland cleared off the line to keep the score at 5-1 as Avisford saw the game off comfortably.
AVISFORD: Salter, Jones, Nowak, Longley, Wasowski, Hunter, Heppenstall, Brian, Kill. Subs - Copeland, Griffiths, Piasecki.
