Cheshunt 4 Romford 1

Cheshunt started the game brightly and nearly opened the scoring after 5 minutes when Harrison Cage spun in the box and narrowly fired wide of the far post. Romford looked dangerous on the counter attack and Aaron Bull was called in to action on 20 minutes to make a tremendous double save from the Romford striker. Cheshunt were left wondering whether it was going to be there night on 30 minutes when Chris Joseph rose highest from a free kick in to the box with his header managing to hit the bar and post and somehow evade Sam Cross and Harrison Cage following in.

The deadlock was finally broken on 65 minutes when George Smith sent in a cross from the right which was met with a flying header from Harrison Cage to send the ball in to the far corner of the net. With 6 minutes to go Romford equalised when a long ball in to the box caused confusion and was eventually fired home by the Romford forward. The final whistle allowed the Cheshunt players to regroup before going in to extra time.
Extra Time

On 95 minutes Cheshunt took the lead when Ruben Junior drove in from the right hand side and played in George Smith who coolly beat the keeper from 8 yards. The lead was further increased 2 minutes later when Ruben once again beat his marker and squared the ball to Scott Cleland-Knight who was bravely denied by the goalkeeper; however George Smith was on hand once again to fire in the rebound with his left foot. Unfortunately, the Romford goalkeeper was injured making the initial save and had to be replaced. The victory was wrapped up on 110 minutes when Smith played in Cleland-Knight who finished with a left footed shot across the keeper.
The Cheshunt players worked extremely hard to gain the victory against a good Romford side and should be extremely proud of their efforts. On to the next round.

Squad: Aaron Bull, Chris Everett, Alex Washbourne, Tommy Carter, Chris Joseph, Tariq Bakkali, Sam Cross, Harrison Cage, George Smith, Alex Hadjithemistou, Ergest Kraja, Jamie Spedding, Ruben Junior, Kodel Horace, Scott Cleland-Knight
