AFC Totton and Oxford City Make Final
The Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division play-off final will be between AFC Totton and Oxford City following...
....Thursday night`s semi-finals. AFC Totton, who sneaked into third place after Tuesday night`s delayed win over Bedford Town, are through after beating Chesham United 3-2 at the Testwood Stadium.
In front of a crowd of 521, the Stags led 2-0 at half-time through goals from Jonathan Davies after 13 minutes and Michael Charles a minute before the break.
However, Chesham pulled back on level terms with goals from Chris Watters after 53 minutes and Simon Thomas just 3 minutes later.
But Ryan Moss lobbed what proved to be the winner for the hosts on the hour-mark.
Totton will now travel to Oxford City on Bank Holiday Monday for the final, with the prize a place in the Blue Square Bet South after Oxford defeated their University City rivals Cambridge City 1-0 at Court Place Farm in front of 564.
It was a heartbreaking second successive play-off semi-final defeat for Cambridge.
The visitors had their chances but were dealt a massive blow at half-time when they lost top scorer Craig Hammond to injury.
And 18 minutes from time Oxford scored what proved to be the winner through experienced defender Chris Willmott - who was only passed fit just before the game - when he fired home following a superb pass from another of the hosts` veterans, Steve Basham, after Cambridge had failed to deal with a corner.
Lee Clift forced a good save as City fought back and Mitchell Bryant had a great chance to force extra-time, but Oxford held firm to earn the right to host Monday`s final.
