Jonte Smith Scores Two Goals In Lewes Draw

November 20, 2017

Bermuda’s Jonte Smith came on as a substitute, and scored two second half goals to push Lewes to a 2-2 draw Thamesmead Town.

The club’s match report said, “Lewes staged a late fight back to grab a deserved point against Thamesmead Town at The Pan on Saturday, thanks to two second-half goals from substitute Jonte Smith, reports Stuart Fuller.

“Three minutes after coming on Jonte scored. Thamesmead lost possession near the Lewes corner flag and Hammond played the ball wide to Ronnie Conlon, who cut inside and played a superb ball in between the centre-backs for Jonte to run on, keep his composure and roll the ball past Carey into the net.

“The Rooks were certainly on the ascendency and Carey had to be on his best form to keep out efforts from Medlock, Smith and a superb curling effort from Ronnie Conlon. Jamie Brotherton entered the fray with fifteen minutes left and immediately looked to take on the weary McIntyre.

“With the clock ticking into the 90th minute, Lewes forced another corner. Sow’s ball rebounds around the area before Jonte turns and pokes the ball into the net to send the Philcox Stand into jubilations. The Rooks had got out of jail to rescue a point but it could have been so different if they had taken their chances in the first half. All credit to Thamesmead who played their part in an entertaining second half.”
