HEREFORD Pegasus manager joint manager Mick Panniers was glad to see his side take their chances following a 6-3 cup victory over Wellington.

Levi Ellis scored a second half brace for Peggy as they breezed past their Herefordshire rivals to book their place in the second round of the Banbury Litho Floodlit Challenge Cup.

Meanwhile Westfields and Lads Club also flexed their muscles to book their places in the next round.

“We’ve been playing football all year but playing on the break like we did tonight and getting it up front early helped us out,” said Panniers following the victory.

“I thought we played very well and it’s about time we scored some goals as we’ve been struggling to finish and playing two up front made the difference.

“I thought we totally dominated to be honest. They are a tough side who haven’t lost this season so it’s a decent result for us.

“We’ve missed a lot of chances in the games we’ve played so it was nice to see a few go in today.”

Peggy started with a bang and took the lead after six minutes through Kieran Slatter’s ninth minute effort which was cancelled out by Matt Williams mid-way through the first half.

Despite Welly looking second best at times they took a 49th minute lead when Saul Thomas beat the goalkeeper.

However, they led for just five minutes as Tom Boyle finished inside the box before Ellis netted a brace to put them out of sight.

An own goal made it 5-2 before Paul Jones won and scored a penalty to give his side a glimmer of hope with 17 minutes remaining.

However, it Pegasus’ evening and another quick break resulted in Miles Langford completing the scoring.

Pegasus host the first match on their new 3G surface on Saturday when they welcome Tytherington Rocks to Old School Lane (3pm) for their Hellenic One West fixture.

“It’s a beautiful set-up and once we can get on there and play a few games on there we’re hoping it will help us out a bit,” added Panniers.

Westfields progressed to the second round after beating fellow Hellenic Premier side Lydney Town 3-1 at Allpay Park.

Ben Hayes opened the scoring for Fields on the 28th minute with a curled effort which looped into net from the edge of the box.

Fields doubled their lead three minutes later with Richard Greaves setting up Joe Bates to slide home a second goal.

Phil Glovers’ side secured their place in the next round with a third goal before the break with Keanu Cooper scoring after running through one-on-one.

Lydney pulled a goal back after the break and despite probing for the second Fields progressed.

Westfields sit top of the Hellenic Premier after beating Ardley United 5-1 on Saturday.

Lads Club also progressed in the cup following a convincing 4-1 victory at Newent Town as they continued their emphatic form.

Tom Bendall opened the scoring after six minutes for the visitors before James Hancocks doubled their lead.

Despite Newent pulling a goal back Adam Hockey and Nick Britton were on hand to secure the victory.

Danny Moon’s side sit top in the Hellenic Division One West with three wins and a draw from four ties and 21 league goals to their name.

Last weekend they secured a 10-0 win at Tytherington Rocks when Bendall and Hancocks both netted a hat-trick.
