BRIGHTLINGSEA turned on the style in the fi­nal 20 min­utes to over­come strug­gling Wor­thing, who fin­ished the af­ter­noon with ten men.

In a very cagey first half, both sides strug­gled to make the break through. The only no­table chance fell to Rs’ Billy Hunt who shot wide from an Aaron Con­don cross.

Straight af­ter the restart, Wor­thing should have bro­ken the dead­lock. Jimmy Wild broke though and his shot forced a fine save from keeper Harry Palmer but Kieron Pam­ment bal­looned over the re­bound.

Re­gent made them pay af­ter 70 min­utes, when a long-dis­tance strike from Harry Mc­Don­ald was par­ried by Wor­thing keeper Lu­cas Co­volan and Josh Gould bun­dled home the re­bound.

Two min­utes later, Josh Gould tried to get onto the re­bound af­ter Con­don’s lon­grange ef­fort but he was bun­dled over. Hunt dis­patched the penalty.

On 81 min­utes, Wor­thing’s Al­fie Young re­ceived a sec­ond book­ing for throw­ing a frus­trated head­butt to­wards Con­don.

Hunt com­pleted the scor­ing in the 87th minute, stroking home Rob Har­vey’s cross. STAR MAN: Billy Hunt (Brightlingsea Re­gent) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
