  • With their first opportunity Pegasus took a sixth minute lead when Marshall Hopkins picked out the run of Saul Thomas who slotted past the goalkeeper.
  • The visitors should have been level just a minute later with Nat Robinson found in space but firing his effort wide.
  • Pegasus skipper Jamie Price came within an inch of doubling his side's lead rattling the crossbar from his free-kick before Saul Thomas put the rebound into the side-netting.
  • Out of nowhere Hopkins did double Pegasus' advantage on 29 minutes sneaking the ball off Abingdon goalkeeper Cameron Midwinter before slotting into an empty net.
  • A minute later Carlos Moreira jinked and turned inside the box before blazing his effort across goal and wide.
  • Before the break Abingdon had their best spell of the half with Robinson seeing an effort sail over the bar.
  • Abingdon also started the second half brighter and Connor Ferguson saw his strike from outside the box sail just wide.
  • However, it was Peggy who could have sealed the points on 55 minutes with Hopkins finding space inside the box before rifling just over.
  • Jordan Williamson was next to test the Abingdon goal winning the ball outside the box before sending a stinging effort over.
  • However, it was Abingdon who pulled themselves back into the tie with Mike Mitev finding the top corner with just strike from outside the box.
  • Moments later Ferguson had a chance in a better position but fired wide.
  • Robinson was next to go close with an effort inside the box but completely missed the ball with his strike.
  • With 18 minutes left Jordan Williamson restored Peggy's two-goal advantage running at the defence before firing low into the bottom corner.
  • Robinson should have scored a second Abingdon goal in controversial circumstances after a quickly taken free-kick released the striker who beat the goalkeeper and then put his effort wide.
