Football: Hay St Mary's seal 3-1 home win over Presteigne in ER Jenkins Cup
Hay St Mary’s 3 Presteigne 1
A BRACE from Jack Biggs has fired Hay St Mary’s into the ER Jenkins Cup semi-finals.
The Saints scored three first-half goals in a hard working display which set up their pool win yesterday (Saturday) at Forest Road.
Hay played into a strong wind in the opening half but broke the deadlock in the 26th minute.
Brendan Hackett threaded a ball through to Phil Davies who struck a left-foot shot across Presteigne goalkeeper Simon Hamer.
The hosts doubled their lead in the 34th minute when Biggs headed in Hackett’s corner.
And Biggs extended Hay’s advantage soon afterwards, hitting a low shot past Hamer.
Presteigne improved after the interval and deservedly pulled a goal back through Nick Evans’ header.
Presteigne’s goalkeeper Hamer made some fine saves.
And Hay goalkeeper Tom Lewis pushed out Danny Evans’ last-gasp header.
