HEREFORD Pegasus returned to winning ways with an impressive 2-0 victory against Worcester Raider at their impressive Sixways Stadium.

The Worcester venue holds fond memories for Pegasus having been successful in the last three meetings, scoring nine goals without reply.

The hosts shaded the opening exchanges without ever threatening to trouble the visitors.

Then in the 19th minute Cawley Cox outpaced the home defence to a through ball, before rolling the ball past the advancing goalkeeper Thomas Hayward.

Cox has been in fine scoring form and the opener was his 18th uhlsport Hellenic league goal of the season.

The remainder of the first period was a fairly even affair as the opponents cancelled each other out.

That was until the 51st minute when the home team gained a free-kick, taken by former Pegasus player Curtis Townley.

The ball was met by the head of Jordan Stoddart and the home supporters started to cheer for a goal. However, Matt Gwynne produced a match winning save to push the ball over the crossbar.

Raiders looked destined to get an equaliser as the visitors struggled to get out of their own half.

However, despite the amount of possession, Danielle Reka testing Gwynne was the only other moment of concern.

Shortly afterwards, Cox raced in the Raiders penalty box but he was unable to get his shot on target.

The remainder of the half was fairly uneventful with both defences dealing adequately with any threats.

That was until deep into additional time when Carlos Moreira broke clear of his marker, he raced into the penalty area before guiding the ball past the advancing Hayward.

The win took Pegasus past the notional “safe from relegation“ mark of 40 points.

Meanwhile, Westfields saw their game at Longlevens postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
