30th of October 2022: A great start undone by a catastrophic second half.
John Rix comes back into the team.
The Aztecs got off to a flying start. Laurynas Jonaitis scoring a goal of the season contender with only seconds played. Intercepting a Sussex kick-in, with the keeper out, Jonaitis hit it first time, scoring from deep inside the Aztecs half. The lead was doubled when Mamadou Sané showed great skill offensively and defensively, stealing the ball, using great skill to keep it, playing a great one two with Santos, and then finding the bottom corner.
And then it went downhill. Southampton held out well for a long time, always on the backfoot, trying to fend off the Sussex onslaught. It was coming, and Sussex eventually pulled it back to 4-2 right before half-time. The second half, however, is one we want to forget, conceding twelve goals without reply.
Excellent in defence, with a goal of the season contender to boot, Laurynas Jonaitis was voted as player of the match.
