Jonte Smith Scores In Victory Over Grinstead

December 11, 2016 | 0 Comments

Bermuda’s Jonte Smith scored for Lewes FC as they recorded a 3-1 victory against East Grinstead.

The club’s match report said, “An impressive second-half performance saw Lewes return to winning ways with a deserved victory against a hard-working East Grinstead side reports Tom Harper.

“Darren Freeman made three changes to the side that lost 4-0 at Hythe in their previous game, with academy defender Dean Stewart-Hunter handed his first-team debut and Gus Sow and Jonte Smith coming into the starting-line up in place of Arinse Uade, Ronnie Conlon and the injured Duncan Culley.

“The Rooks made a bright start and took the lead after just seven minutes through Charlie Coppola, who cut in from the right and sent a superb 25-yard effort past Chris Haigh in the East Grinstead goal and into the top corner.

“The lead lasted barely a minute though, as the hosts went on the attack from the restart and saw Tashi Kwayie convert a low cross from the right to level the scores almost immediately.

“The final chance of the half fell to Lewes, with Jonte Smith seeing an effort from a difficult angle hit the side-netting after good play down the right from Stewart-Hunter.

The Rooks started the second half in a similar fashion to the first, and saw Jack Dixon send two headers just wide within minutes of the restart.

“Lewes made the most of this let-off by taking the lead on the hour through Smith, who latched onto a perfectly-weighted through-ball from Stephen Okoh and sent a composed finish past Haigh and into the back of the net at the end of an incisive counter-attack to score his third goal since returning to the Pan on a permanent basis last month.

“Lewes saw out the closing stages of the game comfortably and could have added to their lead in stoppage time, as substitute Callum Kealy sent a powerful effort from the edge of the area just over after another impressive counter-attack.”

Next up for Lewes is the visit of Godalming Town next Saturday.
