PEGASUS’ assistant-manager Marc Jarvis said he had no excuses after seeing his team’s Wembley dream go up in smoke.
The Hereford side went into the half-time break 1-0 ahead in the FA Vase first round fixture, but had no answer to Southam’s onslaught in the second period, which saw the visitors score twice to progress through to the next round.
“I am very disappointed in losing the game as in the first 20 to 25 minutes we created a lot of chances, but in the second-half we didn’t get going and were very slack,”
“They dominated and deserved to win the game.
“We have got a lot of injuries and had tired legs, but that is not an excuse.
“We know we can do better and want to do well in any cup competition.
“We played a team who play at the same level as us, so to lose is disappointing.
“We just ran out of ideas.”
Pegasus started off like a train.
They took the lead in the 20th minute when Jack Lewis drove home from a short corner.
Southam were a different side in the second-half and drew level when Simeon Smith turned and fired home past Mikael Corbisier in the Pegasus goal.
That ignited the away team and they created a number of chances before they did eventually get the winner when Smith dived low to head home.
Pegasus will resume their West Midlands Premier Division programme on Saturday when they host struggling Shifnal.
