HEREFORD Pegasus booked their spot in the Hellenic League Challenge Cup semi-final after an emphatic 4-0 win over Fairford Town.

After wins against Premier side Hereford Lads Club and Lydney Town a third home tie saw Fairford leave the KGD Stadium also knocked out.

Pegasus will play the winner of the Tuffley Rovers v Bradford Town in the last four.

Pegasus gave a debut to 16-year-old goalkeeper Jack Oxenham who made a brave save at the feet of Archie Brennan.

The home side gradually found their rhythm as Jordan Williamson forced a superb fingertip save from Ben Mitchell.

Williamson rifled another shot hitting the crossbar before Mitchell pushed a looping header by Cawley Cox onto the bar.

Three minutes before the interval Pegasus eventually broke the deadlock on the counter-attack.

Cox made a defensive block before releasing Matt James who placed his shot inside the post.

Five minutes after the break, the hosts double their lead.

A ball from Kyle Panniers from central defence found Saul Thomas, he raced down the left then crossing perfectly for Cox to tap home.

Two minutes later, Thomas made the same run, this time his shot was parried by Mitchell only for Cox to tap home the rebound.

The goal was Cox’s 12th goal in 11 games since his return from Westfields.

The visitors were fortunate to keep 11 men on the pitch when Matt Sysum as the last defender clattered Cox, who was injured and replaced.

In the closing minutes, Carlos Moreira raced into the penalty area, jinked past two defenders before being upended.

Panniers scored the resulting penalty to complete the 4-0 scoreline.

l Hereford Pegasus Ladies continued their scoring form with an emphatic 11-0 win at Ludlow Town Ladies.

Roxana Dinescu and Emily Morgan both scored hat-tricks in the league display.
