1-0 Lowestoft Town Goal (40 mins)
Rossi Jarvis lays the ball into the path of Chris Henderson, who drills a fantastic shot home from fully 25 yards to give the blues the lead.
2-0 Lowestoft Town Goal (59 mins)
A Frazer Blake-Tracy corner finds its way back out to him and with him delivering again the ball eventually falls in the area to Michael Spillane, who drills through a crowd of players from the angle but Bognor can’t keep it out and the blues double their lead.
3-0 Lowestoft Town Goal (87 mins)
Lovely footwork by Chris Henderson sees him carry the ball forward with intent and after a delightful one-two with Connor Deeks, he carries the ball into the box and finishes with aplomb to put the game out of reach for the home side.
3-1 Bognor Regis Town Goal (90 mins)
A ball in from the right finds Crane at the far post and with him hitting the ball into the ground from just three yards out, a wrong-footed Waite can do nothing as the home side grab a consolation goal.
