Lewes’ long journey to Lowestoft Town ended in defeat after the Trawlerboys recorded a 2-0 victory today.
After a goalless first half, the hosts sealed the points in the second period.
First Blake Saker netted with a beauty from 30 yards out, and then Jack Defty pounced on a defensive error to score at the second attempt, after Kieron Thorp has saved the initial effort.
