CHURCHILL Club 70 marched into the semi-finals of the Somerset Premier and First Division County Cup with an epic 3-2 home victory over fellow Division 1 side Westland United after extra time.After a subdued first half, things really got going in the second period.Churchill broke the deadlock when Kevin Pearce was fouled in the box by Chris Disney and Ryan Morris stepped up to convert the pressure spot kick.Just as it looked like Churchill were going to see the game out, they were hit with a sucker punch when Neil Keeling curled in a glorious free kick minutes before the end.Churchill grabbed the initiative again when Kevin Pearce was on hand to stab in from close range after Ross Casey's shot was saved.Minutes later, Keeling equalised again when Oli Bliss' corner was headed home. Churchill grabbed the winner through a superb Ross Casey header.
