Rocks Go 2nd In The League.
Two Wins Out Of Two @ Home.
A double from Dan Smith was the difference as Bognor Regis Football Club continued their unbeaten start to the season.
Bognor kicked the game off looking to make it two home wins in four days, however it was the visitors who started the brighter as they found success with Chris Gregan’s long throw but Stortford were still unable to find a way past Dan Lincoln in the home goal.
The first half drew to a close with both teams unable to force any real openings.
Both teams returned to the pitch and it was the home side who had the first chance of the second half neat shot by Smith was saved superbly by Callum Kitscha with the resulting corner cleared easily.
Twenty minutes were remaining in the match when it suddenly burst into life, Jimmy Muitt received the ball in the right-wing area, his cross was met by BRAD LETHBRIDGE who was there to tap in at close range.
The goal saw the visitors trying to force an equaliser however it was Bognor who scored again four minutes later as Doug Tuck had a shot on the edge of the box, it was miscued and Dan Smith was the lucky recipient as he turned and smashed the ball low and hard past Kitscha.
The Rocks made sure of the win 8 minutes from time as Archie Edwards was brought down inside the penalty area by Stortford debutant Isaac Nkosi.
SMITH stepped up to take the resulting kick and he made no mistake from twelve yards and completing a very good result for The Rocks.
