Penalty woe for brave Scholars
It was runners-up medals for Chasetown after a 4-3 penalty shoot out defeat.
Chasetown 1 Stoke City 1
Staffordshire Senior Cup final
Chasetown made a dream start with a goal after four minutes. Matthew Gardner - who scored twice on his full debut at the weekend - got on the end of a ball into the box and confidently side footed past Harry Isted.
Stoke were a whisker away from an equaliser when Ryan Hill’s deflected effort looped up and Curtis Pond had scurrying back to fingertip over the bar.
The Potters continued to pressurise the non leaguers and Dominic Telford received the ball from a Hill flick on and fired into the side netting from a tight angle.
Stoke got even closer three minutes before half time. A speculative effort from Danny Jarvis had Pond rooted to the spot but the ball rebounded off the Scholars crossbar.
Another chance was spurned at the start of the second half. Tyrese Campbell was clean through and goal side of the Chasetown defence but recklessly fired over the crossbar from just inside the penalty area.
Chasetown made a couple of substitutions to freshen up and had a spell of pressure that saw Jack Langston fire into the side netting and Josh Ruff fired on target but straight at Istead.
A minute into four minutes of stoppage time Stoke finally drew level with a left wing corner that was powered home by lanky centre half Harry Souttar.
