Pegasus Juniors back to form with West Midlands League Premier Division win at Wolverhampton Casuals

First published in Sport

Wolverhampton Casuals 1 Pegasus Juniors 4.

PEGASUS bounced back to form with an excellent victory against their fellow West Midlands League Premier Division high-fliers.

Cory Hyde flashed a header just wide from a Ben Price cross in the third minute, but Hyde found the net for the opening goal soon afterwards when he capitalised on good work from Tom Dawson, Chris Mortlock and Anthony Robbins.

An equaliser from Chris Henry 10 minutes before the interval failed to throw Pegasus from their stride and the visitors responded through Hyde to lead at the break.

With Juniors’ defence of Kane Kahaki, Dan Price, Jamie Cuthbertson and captain Paul Allam offering excellent protection to young goalkeeper Zeke Vivian, the visiting attack was given full rein to dominate the game.

And 10 minutes into the second period they extended their lead when a cross from Robbins crept in at the far post with keeper Stephen Jackson and defender John Clapp leaving the clearance to each other.

Five minutes later, Pegasus rounded off the scoring with the goal of the game.

Daniel Sobocinski and Hyde set up Price to cross for Mortlock to power a header past Jackson.

Three good late saves from Vivian allowed Juniors to return well satisfied with an excellent win.

l HINTON hit back from a 1-0 half-time deficit to progress to the quarter-finals of the Herefordshire Football League Senior Cup in a seven-goal thriller at home to Shobdon.

Two goals from Luke Semple and one apiece from Steve Cuss and Callum Ditchfield saw the city side home, with Mark Ammonds, Dan Stack and Tom Watkins scoring for Shobdon.

Leominster player-boss Sam Bowen forsook his usual striking role to stand in as goalkeeper for Town’s tie at Ewyas Harold.

And the former Forest Green forward kept a clean sheet as goals from Ashley Griffiths and Sam Pearson helped Town to a 2-0 win.

Another experienced striker, Mark Davis, showed that he still has the goal touch with a brace in Westfields Reserves’ 5-2 win at Weobley.

Adam Bendall, Tom Burroughs and Ellis Davey scored the other Westfields goals while Zac Canning and John Hawkes were on target for Weobley.

Andrew Densley and Jon Tookey were on target for Ross Juniors in a 2-1 success at Bartestree Reserves, for whom Darren Jones was on target.

In a Premier Division clash, champions Wellington Reserves shared 10 goals at Fownhope for whom Stuart Mills (2), Ben Price (2) and Will Morrall were on target.
