Once, Twice, Three Times, Felipe!
Tonight The Gingerbreads made it to 14 matches unbeaten in all competitions.
The Gingerbreads made 4 changes to the starting line up that beat Ashton United. Academy player Tom Curtis started the match and fellow Academy player Kevin Da Silva Bastos made his debut from the bench. Also making his starting debut was Michael Koopowitz. Stourbridge had 3 players who started in Stourbridge's FA Cup defeat at Wycombe.
In usual fashion, The Gingerbreads attacked from opening minute. The match was 6 minutes old when great work from Jeremiah Dasalou gave Felipe Barcelos a simple tap in.
9 minutes later The Gingerbreads were two up. Michael Koopowitz attacked down the right and delivered a great cross which found Curtis Burrows who volleyed home!
On 23 mins, Stourbridge had a goal disallowed due to a foul on Kieran Preston. Minutes later they did pull one back, Luke Benbow fired home from 25 yards giving Kieran Preston no chance.
Felipe Barcelos made it 3-1 to The Gingerbreads when capitalised on a short back pass and fired the ball into the back of the net.
On the hour Harry Clifton saw his shot go over the cross bar.
Danny Meadows came on to replace Michael Koopowitz.
Then on 74 minutes, Felipe Barcelos grabbed his third and The Gingerbreads fourth. He got on the end of a simple ball over the top and slotted the ball inside the near post. Adam Stevens must've felt Felipe needed a rest so replaced him with Lee Shaw.
With 9 minutes to go, Kevin Da Silva Bastos replaced Jeremiah Dasalou.
With the final whistle, The Gingerbreads made it to the 4th round of the Integro League Cup and Felipe walked off with the match ball.
