LUCKY ROCKS BACK ON TOP

BOG­NOR REGIS T 2 BIL­LER­ICAY TN 1

The Non-League Football Paper - - RYMAN PREMIER - By Liam Good­ley

JAMES FRASER’S 94thminute penalty kept Bog­nor Regis ahead of the chas­ing pack at the top of the ta­ble, af­ter a high-tempo en­counter against an in-form Bil­ler­icay out­fit.

A com­pet­i­tive first half re­mained goal­less but mat­ters im­proved up af­ter the half-time break.

The Rocks went ahead on 65 min­utes.

Ol­lie Pearce’s free-kick floated kindly for Chad Field, who had space in the box to glance his header won­der­fully be­yond Bil­ler­icay cus­to­dian Jack Giddens.

But the Blues equalised on 83 min­utes.

Bog­nor keeper Dan Lin­coln mis­judged the flight of a shot from dis­tance by Lewis Taafe and the ball dipped un­der­neath the cross­bar.

And the vis­i­tors nearly edged in front them­selves on 89 min­utes when sub­sti­tute Goldy Capela hooked a cross into the net from a tight an­gle only for his ef­fort to be dis­al­lowed for ob­struc­tion on Lin­coln.

Five min­utes later, though, James Crane’s shot struck a Bil­ler­icay hand in­side the area and Fraser sent Giddens the wrong way to keep the Rocks at the sum­mit.
