Warminster Town won 4-3 on penalties

The pitch passed an afternoon inspection and despite more rain before the kickoff was playable. Arrived early so plenty of parking available in the good sized car park. Ground nothing spectacular but ticks all the boxes. Fully railed, hard standing, two stands, one seated the other standing. The clubhouse had a bar (no hand pumps) and a tea bar serving pies, pasties, sausage rolls and hot drinks!

This cup tie was an absolute cracker! Going into this game Sports sat second in the Division 1 table Town were 12th. The game started in spectacular style when Town’s keeper Nathan Ball scored in the first minute with a wind assisted punt that caught out the home keeper. In the 14th minute the visitors were two up when I think it was Miluk had a shot from just outside the box deflected past the keeper. Sports on the back of a seven game unbeaten run pressed hard to get back into the tie. Three minutes before half time they halved the deficit with a free kick on the edge of the box that was fired through the wall. After the break Sports dominated and with some help from the officials got back on level terms. In the 52nd minute a goalmouth scramble led to the referee pointing to the spot. Keeper Ball got a hand to the shot but could not keep it out, two-two. With most decisions going the way of the home team the visitors frustrations started to get the better of them and in the 58th minute an outburst from keeper Ball led to him being sin binned. For the next fourteen minutes (stoppage time added to the ten) It was backs to the wall for Town with the stand in keeper making two excellent saves. Once back to eleven against eleven the game reverted to end to end drama as both sides went for the win but at the full time whistle they could not be separated. And so to pens. After five each it was three all with both keepers saving twice. Then man of the match Ball stepped up again. First he saved Sports sixth penalty and then fired in the winning spot kick himself. A goal in open play, a sin binning, three penalty saves and then scoring the winning penalty. Quite a night for the Town keeper!
