Johan Ter Horst headed in a stoppage time winner as Folkestone Invicta and Bognor Regis Town were involved in a second seven-goal thriller against each other in four days, this time in The Alan Turvey Trophy, sponsored by Velocity, Knockout Stage One at The BuildKent Stadium on Tuesday night.

Bognor had come back from 2-0 and 3-1 down to win 4-3 at home to Invicta in the league on Saturday and The Rocks here came back from 3-0 down during the second half in what was again a very open game.

Ter Horst opened and closed the scoring to take Invicta through to an away tie at Basildon United.

Further goals from Jerson Dos Santos and Ronnie Dolan put Invicta 3-0 ahead before Eddie Wakley, James Crane and Dan Smith scored to bring Bognor level.

Both sides made four changes to the starting X1s that had met in the league at Nyewood Lane on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Henry Newcombe, Finn O’Mara, Dos Santos and Ter Horst came in for the Folkestone club as Tim Roberts, Micheal Everitt, Ira Jackson and Chinedu McKenzie were all on the substitutes’ bench.

Bognor only came with two substitutes – a long midweek January away trip in the League Cup can do that. Their main changes from Saturday came at the back as central defenders Matt Casey and Keaton Wood were missing, as was winning goalscorer Brad Lethbridge.

In a makeshift visiting defence, number three Crane played at right back, number ten Joshua Flint was at left back and number two captain Harvey Whyte partnered Wakley at the heart of the defence.

Invicta had the first chance of the night when Dos Santos shot wide of the target on the turn in the sixth minute after Josh Vincent played it in when Scott Heard picked him out on the right hand side.

The home side had the ball in the net in the 17th minute when after Bognor gave the ball away Kieron McCann found Ter Horst on the right whose ball into the box was touched in by Dos Santos just ahead of a defender but the striker’s goal drought was not over just yet as assistant referee Matthew Grist’s flag was up for offside.

An O’Mara shot from the right hand side warmed Amadou Tangara’s hands a minute later and the Bognor goalkeeper then saved the Invicta man’s rebound as well.

Invicta opened the scoring in the 26th minute when TER HORST slotted the ball into the net after a good through ball from O’Mara.

A Dos Santos touch then gave goalscorer Ter Horst another chance two minutes later but this time the striker was to shoot over the crossbar.

Dos Santos hit a 34th minute free kick well wide of the target after Ter Horst had been fouled when O’Mara played the ball up to him on the right hand side.

Bognor’s first real chance followed a minute later when Arron Hopkinson headed just over after a Flint cross from the left when Mo Diallo played the ball to him.

At the other end, a 38th minute Dolan ball into the penalty area was put wide by Heard who didn’t make clean enough contact in a move started by Heard himself and O’MaraBognor gained the first corner of the game late in the first half when O’Mara headed out a 40th minute ball in from the left.

A 42nd minute Heard shot was then blocked by Whyte inside the Bognor penalty area when a Ter Horst ball found Dos Santos who played it back.

Invicta made it 2-0 just 34 seconds after the interval when DOLAN thumped the ball in after a McCann delivery from the left hand side.

Bognor had brought Mason Walsh on at half time – who had scored their opening goal in Saturday’s league game – and the substitute touched the ball to Smith in the 52nd minute but the striker’s curled shot lacked sufficient power.

It appeared to be game over when DOS SANTOS ended a barren 10 ½ (11 including the first half here) games without a goal when he rifled his 56th minute shot into the net after Ter Horst had turned provider on the right hand side of the box.

Bognor pulled a goal back in the 58th minute when a Tommy Leigh corner from the right was met by a Crane shot that Newcombe kept out close to the line but WAKLEY then put the ball into the net. At the time it looked to be no more than a consoaltion goal!

Invicta gained their first corner of the night a minute later when Heard’s ball in was headed out.

Both sides made substitutions as Bognor’s Michael Baker came on for Diallo and Invicta then gave a senior debut to 17-year-old Tyler Sterling who came on for Matt Newman (with O’Mara dropping back to central defender) and McKenzie came on for Dos Santos.

Invicta had the next chance as a 67th minute Ter Horst ball across goal from the right hnad side was just behind McKenzie and a Ter Horst shot was kept out as the home side gained a corner six minutes later when the latter combined with Heard after captain Callum Davies had played the ball up to him.

But it was game on again when Bognor made it 3-2 in the 76th minute when following a foul on the left hand side of the box, the subsequent free kick was touched to CRANE whose driven shot was deflected into the net.

Invicta had two chances in the 79th minute as Sterling ran through the middle but his shot was blocked by Wakley and Tangara came out to save from Ter Horst when McCann picked the striker out on the right hand side of the box.

Ter Horst became the only player booked by referee Ian Fissenden as he pushed his hand into a defender’s face which led to a flare up close to the touchline.

Bognor threatened again in the 83rd minute when Crane met a Leigh corner from the right but Newcombe did well to touch the header over the crossbar.

It was end-to-end as Invicta had the ball in the net again a minute later when Ter Horst flicked the ball in after McCann had cut in from the left hand side but a flag for offside was again up.

But, remarkably, it was 3-3 in the 85th minute when Bognor’s top goalscorer SMITH was put through and given onside and dinked the ball past Newcombe.

There were chances at both ends in the 89th minute as firstly Whyte intercepted when Heard attempted to play the unmarked Ter Horst in on the right.  But it was Bognor that nearly made their comeback complete when Crane struck the post at the far post from close range when the ball was initially played up to Smith again and Ben Mendoza played it across goal from the left hand side.

Walsh threaded the ball through to Crane on the right hand side in the 89th minute when the latter’s ball in was put out for a corner by Davies.

Invicta’s top goalscorer Ira Jackson had scored a hat-trick at Bognor on Saturday and came on as a 90th minute substitute here, perhaps with the looming penalty shoot out in mind as two of his weekend goals had been from the spot.

A stoppage time Leigh corner from the right was met by another Crane header but this time Invicta survived when the ball fell towards Mendoza.

Jackson drilled a low ball across from the left hand side at the other end but Tangara claimed.

It was Jackson, though, who then embarked on a run past three defenders down the left hand side of the penalty area but Tangara saved at his near post. From Heard’s corner on the left came the dramatic late decisive monmnet as TER HORST headed in.

14 goals in two matches between the two clubs over four days – seven apiece – with two late winners. Nothing like getting your money’s worth.
