HEREFORD PEGASUS climbed to sixth place in the Hellenic Premier following a comprehensive 5-2 victory over Brinscombe and Thrupp at the KGD Stadium.

The first time Pegasus have scored five goals this season was tainted by conceding two sloppy goals.
Pegasus started brightly and in the second minute Kyle Panniers rattled the underside of the crossbar after connecting with Jamie Price’s free-kick.

Cawley Cox was also denied by the crossbar moments later after firing his effort at goal after Jordan Williamson crossed.

However, it was Brinscombe who took an eighth minutes lead when unchallenged Jack Hughes scored with a powerful header.

Undeterred, Pegasus continued on the front foot with Williamson having a shot deflected against the crossbar.

On the half hour mark Pegasus gained parity when a Carlos Moreira free kick nestled in the far corner of the net.

Three minutes before the interval the home side gained the advantage with Cox heading home a Matt James cross/
Seven minutes into the second half Peggy extended the lead when new signing James Baldwin crossed the ball for Connor Davies-Austin to head over the goalkeeper.
After signing from Pershore Town, Baldwin was having a key influence and crossed for James to make it 4-1 after 59 minutes.

In the 66th minute the Gloucestershire-based visitors were handed a life-line, when a clearance hit Lewis Fletcher for an own goal.
Pegasus continued to dominate and had the chance to further their advantage from the penalty spot when Nathan Chowns-Higgs was bundled over.

However, goalkeeper Jordan Schofield saved brilliantly diving to his left to deny Kyle Panniers.

Pegasus completed the scoring in the 94th minute when Zach Powell scored his first goal for the club by firing home after a parry by the keeper.
A mention must be given to 17-year-old development team goalkeeper Aiden Bryant who made a faultless first team debut.
Manager Mark Hibbard said: “This was a good team display, we probably should have scored more goals. The players are beginning to grasp what I expect from them. This was probably the best performance so far.”

Hereford Lads Club picked up their first win in six league games with a 1-0 victory against Wantage Town.

Sam Judge netted the 59th minute winner after connecting with Sam Hunt’s through ball.

Kane Kahaki was named man of the match in his Lads Club debut after signing from Westfields.
