A quickfire second followed for Long Lane scored by Ben Tuley. Bexley were struggling to cope with the energy and high tempo play of Long Lane and just before half time, Tony Ecuyer scored a third making it 3-0 at the break and a mountain to climb for Bexley United.
The second half started with Bexley looking more energetic and fired up to try and get back into the game but however Long Lane continued where they left off from the first half and scored a fourth goal through Venables. Long Lane had opportunities to score more goals but Bexley managed to pull one back in the 70th min through Ashley Chin-Yue. However any slim hopes of a comeback were put to bed when Long Lane scored their fifth of the afternoon through Dan Murray. Final score 5-1 to Long Lane.
