On a hot, sunny afternoon the Mavericks were unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Vase by a far superior Lancing side from the Premier Division.
Their goal hero was Alex Fair, who netted four times. He opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 4th minute, and James Rhodes made it 2-0 in the 6th minute, firing home into the far corner.
The Mavericks' best moment of the first half came when Joe Patching saw his excellent strike parried away by Taylor Seymour in the Lancing goal.
But the home side piled on the pressure. George Fenton's fierce strike from the left flank increased the lead in the 36th minute, and Fair's own second goal in the 41st minute gave Lancing a 4-0 lead at half-time.
Fair completed his hat-trick in the 50th minute, beating Joe Sandell from 12 yards, before Worthing United's Joe Kennard almost pulled a goal back. His superb effort was tipped over the bar by Seymour, and Lancing came again.
Fair made it 6-0 in the 69th minute with a fine individual goal, and Mo Juwara scored the seventh in the 78th minute with the best goal of the match, a dazzling solo effort which mesmerized the deflated Mavericks' defence.
Sadly there was still time for Kieran Deacon to be sent off for two yellow card offences, completing a miserable afternoon.
