Recap

A second attempt to complete this Benevolent Cup tie produced a nine goal bonanza with Social, who lost the original tie after a penalty shoot-out, deservedly progressing to the next round.

Back in November, Workington thought they had gone through on penalties after a 2-2 draw but Miners protested that the tie should have included a period of extra time prior to the shoot-out.

The County League ordered the match to be replayed and there was a feeling of inevitability as the Whitehaven outfit won second time around, ironically after extra-time. 

Reds took a ninth minute lead when a fine finish from Louis Webster found the top corner of Miners’ net.

But the visitors took control and had established a 3-1 lead by the half hour mark.

Workington felt hard done by when denied what looked a clear-cut penalty but they did reduce the arrears before half time thanks to a Reuben Butterworth header following a corner.

It remained 3-2 in Miners’ favour until the seventy-fifth minute when Matty Foster equalised with a fine goal.  A good first touch, swivel turn and a half volley saw the ball find the net via an upright to level the scores.

But Miners took control in extra time and two quick goals saw them build an unassailable lead.  They got a sixth before the end to wrap up a convincing win against depleted Reds.

For the record, Owen Woods, Lewis Park and Alan Cardy each scored twice for the First Division side as they earned the right to face Mirehouse in the quarter final.

Team: Scott Paden-Gale, Logan Bosward, Dan Whitehead, Reuben Butterworth, Evan Stephenson, Jack Burns, Thomas Houghton, Taylor Hambling, Matty Foster, Louis Webster, Josh Palmer.  Substitutes – Cain Pears, Thomas Downes
