LUTTON 6 GOSBERTON 5: TIM Lowe struck the winner as Lutton shaded this Spalding Sunday League thriller.

After an even start Gosberton went ahead, only for Wayne Congreve to head home a leveller from Adam Pack’s pinpoint cross.

Lutton then went ahead when Mark Garner slotted home, but Gosberton scored soon afterwards to level.

The away side then went ahead through a penalty, but the lead didn’t last long as Tony McEwan headed Lutton level. Goals went in at both ends again, as Gosberton went ahead before Garner notched his second to make it 4-4.

Gosberton must have thought they had it won when they went 5-4 up, yet Josh Slater dramatically squared things again.

Amazingly, with only five minutes to go Lowe scored Lutton’s sixth to give them all three points and a fine win.

SUTTON BRIDGE 2

JUBILEE 4

AFTER a largely frustrating season, Jubilee finally got their act together and ended Bridge’s 100 per cent Division Two record.

Attacking from the off, Danny Nichols’ cracking left foot drive put Jubilee ahead, before Bridge levelled.

Keeper Luke Boekestyn made some important stops before his brother Leigh put the away side 2-1 ahead.

After the break, Nichols had a goal cruelly ruled out, before Luke Chilvers put Jubilee 3-1 up. A spectacular 30-yarder from Simon Webb made it 4-1, before a late Bridge consolation. Outstanding for Jubilee was defender Jack Chilvers.
