Jack Langston hat-trick helps Chasetown FC to victory in nine-goal thriller

Chasetown FC came out on top in a rollercoaster nine-goal thriller against Peterborough Sports.

The Scholars made a dream start with a goal after four minutes. Jake Lovatt whipped in a right foot cross and Muzzy Nduna diverted the ball beyond Daniel George.

A minute later Lovatt was pulled to the ground and Jack Langston sent George the wrong way from the penalty spot.

But Sports reduced the deficit just before the half hour. Curtis Pond made a stunning save and then Mike O’Reilly headed off the line before Oliver Medwynter forced the ball over the line.

The visitors levelled in the 34th minute as Jordan Macleod placed a shot beyond Pond from inside the penalty area.

Chasetown restored their lead five minutes into the second half. Oli Hayward was first to a loose ball and got sent tumbling in the area. Langston converted his second spot kick high to George’s right.

Two minutes later, Langston reacted quickest as the ball bounced up between three players and lashed a left footer home to complete his hat-trick.

But the game still wasn’t sealed as Sports reduced the lead again in the 57th minute through centre back Sam Hill – and on the hour it was 4-4 with substitute Andre Williams volleying home with his first touch after his introduction.

Chasetown restored their lead again in the 65th minute though as Lovatt cut in from the right and smashed the ball past George at his near post.

Peterborough pushed for an equaliser but Chasetown stood firm.
