With a place in the final up for grabs H&H under 15’s travelled to Abingdon Town (also the venue for the Final) to take on Cumnor Minors in the semi final of the knockout cup, H&H kicked off the game a little later than planned and almost took the lead after 5 mins when a cross from Jack to Jaja was laid back to Alex, his shot well saved by the keeper, less than a minute later H&H took the lead through the usual channel - Jaja’s strength going past a defender and squaring the ball to Fish to score, 10 minutes played and H&H doubled their lead, a throw from Archie to Dan and a quick pass to Jaja opened the way for a one 2 between Fish and Jack giving Fish his second goal of the game. The goal of the game came after 20 minutes, a short goal kick to Josh opened up the centre of the field, Josh’s neat pass to Alex allowed him to send a defence splitting pass up to Dan who made no mistake in scoring past the Cumnor keeper to take the score to 3 nil H&H, with 10 minutes to the end of the first half Zac came on for Tom, Cumnor were not going to let H&H win the tie without a fight and on 33 minutes Jack Hunter almost scored for Cumnor, jinking past both a defender and the H&H keeper only a goal line clearance by Josh kept the score at 3 nil to H&H at half time
Half time substitutions: Mede coming on for Jack,
Cumnor started the second half and seemed determined to make it difficult for H&H, attacking down the Harwell left and drifting into the penalty area brought a rash challenge from Dan which gave the ref no other option than to award a penalty, Jack Hunter sending Cameron the wrong way to make the score 3 - 1 to H&H, Cumnor were now the team with the advantage and several attacks led by Jack Hunter almost brought a second goal for Cumnor, H&H upped their game and half way through the second half Dan scored his second goal of the game, winning the ball in midfield Dan passed to Fish on the right who crossed the ball back to Dan and finished well to make the score 1-4 to H&H, H&H controlled the rest of the half bringing on Alexis for Archie and Tom for Brian, no further goals were scored and the game ended 1-4 to H&H, H&H into the final against Headington Blues on the 26th March (mothers day!)
Scorers: Cumnor, Jack Hunter (pen) H&H: Fish 2, Dan 2.
