Highlights: Bowers & Pitsea 1 Lowestoft Town 3

By Ian Townsend

The Trawler Boys do a Bowers double- and hold onto their advantage at the top

Leaders Lowestoft Town had seen their lead at the top of Pitching In isthmian North cut to three points, and they had a tricky trip to fourth place Bowers and Pitsea latest on their schedule. The Trawler Boys were five unbeaten and looking for a third successive win, but the Bowers unbeaten run went back even further, eight matches, and they’d won six of their last seven at the Len Salmon so would have been full of hope- hope which would have slipped a little when Jake Reed put the visitors ahead after just eight minutes. Ten minutes after half time Bowers challenge became rather more difficult, Luke Reeve seeing red and Harvey Sayer stepping up to make it two-nil from the spot, but they did get a goal back through Matt Price eleven minutes from time. Sadly for the home fans that just spurred the visitors into action, Sayer making it three-one with eight minutes left, and that was that- a Lowestoft double over their hosts.
