Banwell Reserves booked a semi-final place in the Knockout Cup with victory over Tickenham.

Tickenham Utd 1

Banwell Res 3

BANWELL Reserves booked themselves into the semi-finals of the Knockout Cup with this win over high-flying Tickenham.

The hosts took the lead on 15 minutes when club chairman and stand-in keeper Bradley Diver misjudged his tackle and brought down the attacker. Diver was sent the wrong way to give Tickenham the lead.

You may also want to watch:

Banwell equalised when Diver kicked the ball the length of the pitch, the home keeper tangled with Adam Abrahams before misjudging the ball and could only watch as the ball crossed the line.

A moment of madness at the end of the first-half saw Banwell’s Harry Hornigold sent off after a bust up with the goalkeeper.

After the break, Mark McKeever’s first game back after injury saw him in the thick of the action and it was his free kick that allowed Stuart Miller to volley home to give Banwell a 2-1 lead.

Banwell continued to press hard with Jones Pennington, McKeever and Miller working tirelessly in the midfield, leaving Abrahams up front on his own.

The visitors put the game out of Tickenham’s reach when a McKeever free kick was headed into the roof of the net by Pennington.

When Tickenham attacked towards the end of the game, the visitors’ backline of Capille, McLoud, Mitchell, Perret and Lucas performed superbly.

Roy Hart Motors man of the match went to the whole team.

Portishead Town 2

Wrington Redhill Res 5

CURRENT Keyes Cup holders Wrington Redhill reached the final again in a bid to retain the trophy they won last season.

Wrington opened the scoring when a corner was chested into the net by Louie Rouvaris and doubled their lead when Dan Tempan’s trickery was rewarded with a goal.

Portishead reduced the arrears giving keeper Mick Edmunds no chance and at half-time the score was 2-1 to the visitors.

Wrington started the second half in much the same fashion with midfielders Paul Burnett, Simon Garrett and Matt Tancock in control. Striker Chris Vowles restored Wrington two goal advantage, but an own goal by Curtis closed the gap.

Lloyd Richardson outpaced his marker and was brought down in the box and calmly tucked the resulting penalty away and put Wrington in the driving seat.

Wrington made the game safe when Vowles grabbed his 24th goal of the season and Wrington ran out winners and face promotion rivals Pill United in the final.

Kewstoke Lions 3

Worle Rangers 2

KEWSTOKE Lions reached the Atwell Shield final after defeating Worle Rangers 3-2.

Lions took the lead when Sam Davies latched onto Callum McManus’ through ball to score. On the half-hour, Joe Popperwell won a penalty for Kewstoke, but was dismissed for an incident with a Rangers player. Adam Brueford scored from the spot to double the lead.

After the break, Sutor’s cross was headed in by Willment to halve the deficit. Ranger got back on level terms when an inswinging corner by Hancock went directly into the net.

With extra time looming, Kewstoke grabbed the winner with a shot by Steve Channing was deflected past the unfortunate Westgarth.

DS Securities man of the match for Kewstoke went to Callum McManus.

For Rangers, skipper Wilson, Willment, Jakeman and Hancock all played well, but were edged to the Curry Garden man of the match by Dean Bray.

Winscombe 1

Kewstoke Lions 3

KEWSTOKE maintained their unbeaten Division 1 form with this impressive victory away from home.

Winscombe opened the scoring with a header from a corner kick, but Ben Popperwell levelled after his brother Joe saw his header rebound off a post. Late in the second half, Phil Hockey slotted home and Sam Davies’ long-range effort killed the game off in the final minutes.
