In a game where we started without Rob , Dan and Joe defence was always going to be difficult without two of our regular defenders and with Ben continuing in nets in the absence of a specialist keeper .
That said the lads started brightly and Unsworth went into the lead when Oisin got on the end of a long Devan pass to finish easily .
We almost went further into the lead when an Oisin free kick found Luke S whose header hit the post and Quinn then put in Lewis who was thwarted by a last ditch tackle . Quinn then found Morgs free in acres of space to beat any offside trap to round the keeper and make it 2-0 .
We were then given a warning when their number 17 blasted against the bar just before half time .
In the second half Unsworth went into a three goal lead when Rowie found Oisin who shot and Lewis could not believe his luck when the keeper made a complete mess of it for an easy goal tapping over the line ,
From this position we should never be beaten but our desire to get more goals in the end is our undoing as we leave big holes in midfield for the opposition to attack and sure enough they quickly scored two goals to put themselves back in the game .
We again went three goals ahead to 5-2 when Lewis put in Morgan who found Lewis free on the right to zip the ball across the goal for an own goal followed shortly after by a long ball to Morgan who again finished far too easily .
Perhaps in future we need to put Oisin in front of the back four as well as Jack when we are in a three goal lead because the naivety of our team defensive play is all too obvious as we strive to get more goals which in reality are not required .
They got back in the game with the one strike of theirs with real quality to reduce the deficit to two , and shortly after , after a good save from Ben they were onto the loose ball quickly to make it 5-4 and just as the ref was to blow the whistle it was 5-5 and into penalties .
Luke made three fine saves and we blasted three here , there and everywhere with the keeper not having to make a save to put them in the next round . Decision making somewhat amiss again it has to be said when once gain we could and should have won it .
