ANTON Anderson hit a late winner for Copland as they edged to a 2-1 triumph against Southall.
Copland were the better side throughout, and Jermaine Dadson came close to making the breakthrough early on, but wasted the chance.
Juvhan Kellar dominated the midfield for the visitors, their early pressure paid off with a goal when Stephan Kellar ran onto a pass and sent a first-time shot thumping into the net.
There were further chances for Copland in a one-sided first half. Anderson found himself clear on goal after a quick break, but couldn't finish the move off, while Aaron Silcott was denied a similar chance by a last-ditch tackle from a Southall defender.
The second half was a tighter affair with Southall starting the stronger, denying Copland the time and space they enjoyed in the first half.
Aleks Hughes cleared one chance off the line to preserve Copland's lead but, in their next attack, Southall finally beat Bertram Williams to level the match.
With their lead wiped out, Copland finally woke up, with Anderson, Jermaine Dadson and Darren Turner taking hold of the match.
And they struck the decisive goal when a ball played from Silcott to Kellar was played back to Silcott, who crossed cleverly for Anderson to slide the ball home.
Southall pushed forward for a second equaliser, but stubborn defending from Copland kept the home side at bay.
