Slough Town Challenge Cup Competition
Junior Semi-Final

Foxes 2

Cippenham Sports 1
 (1:1 at Full Time)

Saturday 28th February 2009

Cippenham Sports bowed out at the semi-final stage with an extra time 2-1 defeat to Foxes.

The hosts went in front early on via a deflection but Cippenham fought back as Jamie Dunning and Keith Oswald went close before Chris Cumming levelled with a delightful lob.

Neither side were wearing their shooting boots in the second half as Dunning grazed an upright and then he blazed wide, whilst Foxes peppered the playground behind Cippenham Sports' goal.

Extra time ensued with Foxes regaining the lead from the penalty spot after a striker won his side the spot kick.

Cippenham flung players forward in a desperate search for an equaliser but Foxes defended in numbers and Cippenham struggled to break them down.  Early in the second half of extra time Dunning had a opportunity to draw his side level but a nasty bobble ruined his chance with the resulting shot going awry.

As Cippenham piled forward, their defence became stretched and keeper Tom Bryant was forced into making a smart save before Adam Randall cleared an effort off the line.  Despite late Cippenham pressure Foxes held on.
