LEVI Steele scored twice as Evesham United inflicted a first home league defeat on Mousehole in 14 months thanks to a 3-1 victory in the Southern League Division One South.

After the 243-mile trip from Evesham to Cornwall, plenty would have perhaps forgiven a slow start from the visitors, but it was anything but as Alfie Dunn opened the scoring inside two minutes as his deflected effort looped over the keeper.

Mousehole equalised through Hayden Turner's penalty ten minutes before half-time but Steele tapped home from inside the six-yard box in first-half stoppage time from Will Owens' low cross to give The Robins a 2-1 lead.

Steele then reacted quickest as the ball pinged around the Mousehole box to fire home and make it 3-1 with just over half-an-hour to play.

Will Owens was sent off in the closing stages of the game to make matters a little difficult but Evesham held out comfortably to take the three points back up to Worcestershire.

Evesham are now climbing the table after a third win in five league games and sit 10th in the table ahead of their home game with Larkhall Athletic on Tuesday night.
