Challenge Cup Final

Hazlemere win Challenge Cup Final

Witney Royals 1-2 Hazlemere

Hazlemere came from behind to win the cup with a goal with the last kick (head actually) of the game.

Witney took the lead 2 minutes before the break in what was a well matched opening period, Witney had a lot of possession but a resolute Hazlemere defence denied any clear cut chances.

Just 10 minutes into the 2nd half Hazlemere got the equaliser they so badly needed and this lead to a more even match with both sides having chances to take the lead.

With extra time looking likely Kevin Howell delivered an inch perfect cross from the left which was emphatically headed home to cap a wonderful comeback.
