Result: Southport 3-2 Maidstone
Jamie Allen scored at the beginning of each half as Southport defeated Maidstone in the National League.
The striker opened the scoring in the fifth minute as he tapped in a Liam Nolan knock-down from a corner.
Nolan then got on the score-sheet himself to double the hosts’ advantage in first-half stoppage time before Southport made it 3-0 shortly after the break when Allen got his second of the game.
Maidstone pulled a goal back as Yemi Odubade’s close range finish reduced the deficit for the visitors.
The Stones made it 3-2 in stoppage time when Bobby-Joe Taylor dispatched a penalty but it proved to be too late for Maidstone.
