STAGS’ FORM STOPPED BY PLUCKY LINNETS
On a frosty Tuesday evening at the Snows Stadium, Lymington Town knocked local rivals AFC Totton out of the Southern League Challenge Cup.
In a cagey first-half, the best opportunity fell to the hosts. Jordan Ngalo surged forward and slid the ball to Brett Williams, who rounded the keeper but couldn’t finish from a tight angle.
Ross Casey was the busier of the two goalies throughout the night, making a number of excellent saves to deny the hosts.
The deciding goal came late in the tie, Freddie Bullard latching onto a long ball to coolly slot home past Amadeusz Skrzyniarz.
Totton pushed for an equaliser, but couldn’t find the breakthrough against a resilient Lymington side.
