Coppice 2 WHC 2 AET. WHC Win 4-2 On Penalties
A late switch from a neutral ground at Banners Gate saw WHC swapping their boots for trainers as they took to the astro at Coppice.
On a small hard pitch it was always going to be difficult to play passing football and WHC fell behind after Alfie inadvertently sliced the ball past Alex. We were soon back level though as Josh slotted home from the penalty spot after a push in the box. The second half was an even affair and with less than 60 seconds left on the clock Marcus put WHC in the lead following a parried shot from Mark 1-2. That surely had booked a final slot for WHC but Coppice had other ideas and forced a quick corner which was turned in with the last kick of the game to send the game into extra time. 2 -2. Extra time saw WHC doing everything but score as the tie went to penalties.
Alfie stepped up and slotted home followed by a Coppice miss 0-1. Josh then hit the back of the net and Alex saved well 0–2. Caius then hit the woodwork and Coppice scored 1-2. Sam blasted home and so did Coppice 2-3. Morgan then stepped to seal the victory as the ball hit the back of the net and sent the boys wild 2-4.
Well done boys and a final at Sutton Town FC as a reward for your efforts this season.
