But they hit back with a quickfire brace from Shivam Dahya and Hiren Amin after the restart, with both goals set up by Ben Goacher.

Loughts went 4-2 up with 15 minutes to play, but Dahya grabbed his second to set up a tense finale.

And with only two minutes remaining, Will Harding smashed a ball to Richard McKenna in the D and his deft touch found the net.

Two-goal Dahya took the man of the match award for a fine all-round display.
