LA Codgers Report;

"A very competetive cup fixture with lots of excitement up to the final whistle. Cowboys opened the scoring with the first attack of the game when a good save from a free kick by Neil Monaghan was smashed in on the rebound at the far post. Cowboys lively forward should have increased their lead but for a fine double block on the goal line by Paul Fitzgerald. The second half saw LA grow in confidence and equalised through an equisite Nick Evans lob. LA then took control and Rob Mizon rounded off a good move with a diving header at the far post. Cowboys then fought back and scored from a defensive mix up in the LA box. Codgers then attacked and were unlucky to see an Evans header disallowed, but then forced an own goal followed by a delightful Benji Tricker dink put LA 4-2 up. Codgers lack of fresh legs then showed in the last five mins as Cowboys threw the kitchen sink at LA and scored two late goals to force penalties. LA missed their first two before Cocdgers keeper saved the next two to force sudden death. LA missed the chance to win it as a penalty squirmed wide with the keeper on the other side of the goal. Cowboys then scored and their keeper produced a fine save from Pete Martin to send them through. Best of luck in the next round! The game was very fairly refereed by Geoff Prynn and Man of the Match was Nick Evans. "
