BIS Division 4A

ORWELL'S Dale Wilson got a last gasp winner in what is probably the most remarkable match of the season so far.

Wilson's tap-in from one yard sealed a monumental victory for league leaders Orwell after his team had blown a 5-0 lead to be pegged back to 5-5 in a remarkable second half comeback from Ashley Hawkins' Litlington.

Orwell went 5-0 up courtesy of goals from Dale Wilson, Chay Wilson (two), player-manager Chris Haynes and Ben Squires, but conceded just before the break when Liam Butler scored what felt like a consolation, but what turned out to be the first of a remarkable comeback.

The visitors' James Evans was at the forefront of the reverse, with four second half goals the fifth of which saw him mobbed by a delighted Litlington team who thought they had done the improbable.

With 15 minutes remaining Litlington pushed on to find a winner and Evans had another chance if only he would have squared the ball to Butler but shot at goal.

Nobody could blame Evans for trying his luck, however.

The minutes ticked by and Litlington must have thought a well-earned point was in the bag until Wilson stepped up with just seconds left on the clock to puncture their hopes.

After the game, Orwell boss Haynes said: "We were exceptional in the first half and could have been 8-0 up, but to give Litlington their due they were outstanding in the second half and must have been gutted at the end of the match.
