Games at Crilly Park between these two clubs are rarely boring and Tuesday night’s league clash proved no exception.
It was full of incident and controversy from start to finish.
As time ticked on, it did look as though the Rams had thrown away two points as, despite their dominance, the home side were clinging on to a 1-1 scoreline.
However, after a late scare when LR looked likely to snatch all three points, the visitors came good with two late strikes for victory.
The action began as early as the fourth minute when Joel Pilkington hit the LR bar and within seconds saw another effort thwarted by the keeper.
Ian Flannery then had a header cleared off the line before Dominic Smalley saw his angled drive palmed round for a corner.
So it was somewhat against the run of play when the home side opened the scoring on 12 minutes.
The one-way traffic left a gap down the Rams’ left-hand side and a through ball found Griffiths in acres of space. He raced goalwards before firing low past the advancing Grant Shenton.
Two minutes later, Haubus also found space but this time he shot well wide.
At the other end, Mickey Morrison shot wide, Flannery headed over and Keiron Pickup’s drive was saved.
On 23 minutes it looked like they would equalise but Lee Gaskell’s goalbound effort was cleared off the line by a defender.
A minute later though the scores were level.
Following some trickery from Gaskell, who had a superb game throughout, the ball broke for Smalley and he fired a low drive past the keeper and in by the far post.
That seemed to wake up the home side, and two minutes later they had cause for complaint when a penalty appeal was turned down.
A low cross from the left saw Shenton collide with Griffiths, but the referee waved play on.
It was end to end action with Flannery having another effort cleared off the line after the break and this time the Rams having a penalty appeal waved away.
With just nine minutes left and with the Rams almost camped in the LR half, a back pass to Grant Shenton was missed by the normally reliable custodian.
The ball rolled towards the empty net but Shenton recovered just in time to sweep it away seconds before an LR forward was about to pounce.
And finally the Rams took the lead when Gaskell took his time to outwit his marker before sending in an inch-perfect cross for Jon Robinson to nod home from close range.
Three minutes later, and it was all over.
The ball broke kindly for Morrison on the edge of the box and he guided it low into the far corner to seal an emphatic win for the Rams.
