's deft touch from a Gui Green ball into the D wrong footed the Worthing keeper to level the scores at 2-2 midway through the first half. But 2 well taken goals on the break by Worthing stunned Lewes. Great effort form the midfield of Drew, Oil Loader, Gui Green and Toby Izzard
and resolute defending from Leon Keating
, Oil Ingham, Captain Charlie Cooke
