Second Semi-Final Beckons!
Holwell booked their place in the Semi- Final of the Presidents Trophy competition defeating a strong Lutterworth Athletic outfit 3-1.
From the off Holwell went on the attack, Mark Tinsley making ground down the right, out muscling his marker to get in a low cross but 'Diddy' Hazeldine missed the target, however in their next foray forward the Lutts keeper dropped a harmless looking cross at Tinsley's feet, "Thank you very much, I’ll have that!
Lutterworth got on terms when Alex Brown clattered a forward just outside the area, was yellowed carded and watched Liam Hubbard's twenty yard free kick wizz past his left hand.
The hosts regained the lead when Tinsley was fouled in an identical position to Lutterworth’s equaliser but Matt Harby beat the keepers' right hand. Minutes later Brown had to back-pedal furiously to finger tip a dipping volley onto the bar and catch the rebound.
With full time looming a diagonal cross from Harby to the far post picked out Hazeldine to fire in from an almost impossible angle off the under-side of the bar.
