2 goals from Elliott as Beavers win on penalties

Hampton win difficult Charity Cup tie on penalties after Southall fight back to level scores.

The Beavers made hard work of earning their place in the Middlesex FA Charity Cup quarter-final, only staking that place through the lottery of a penalty shoot out after a 2-2 draw agains Spartan South Midland League club Southall FC.

The step 6 club were clearly not intimidated by the Beavers and after a quiet start, the visitors began to find their feet.

Southall were the first to create a clear chance, through Anthony Page, but his header was well off target and the closest the Beavers got in the first 20 minutes was through Dylan Randall's shot, which went the wrong side of the post.

Just after the half hour, Joe Brown nearly managed to open the scoring for the visitors with a rasping low drive that had Will Henry diving to his right and pushing it wide of the post.

Hampton were looking second best at times but with 10 minutes to the break, the Beavers took the lead. Elliott Charles coolly applied the finish to a Taurean Roberts free kick after a couple of mis-kicks on the way.

It wasn't long before the Beavers were two goals in front as Charles converted a low cross from Enoch Soganile after some fine work down the left by the young wing back, beating a couple of defenders on his way to delivering the cross.

The Beavers were looking comfortable at the start of the second half but the confidence was rocked early in the second half as Jack Bennett's cross got caught on the wind, struck the far post and ended up in the back of the net.

The 'Hall roared back to life and their equaliser wasn't long in coming as Will Henry's sliced clearance gave Aaron Morgan a gilt-edged chance which the striker took full advantage of, sliding the shot neatly under the on-rushing Henry.

Hampton were struggling to create clear chances as Southall played it tight; Harry Crawford dragged his shot from the edge of the box with some 20 minutes to go as the Beavers looked to get a result.

With added time of 4 minutes to be played, Southall created their best chance of the half as Andrew Harewood latched on to a long ball as he cut between Imran and Charlie Wassmer; however, he mis-controlled the ball and it bounced off his knee into the arms of Henry, allowing the Beavers a sigh of relief.

As the result had to be decided on penalties; after the final whistle, the action moved to the Alan Simpson Stand end, and Charlie Wassmer stepped up to start the shoot out.

After Charlie despatched his kick clinically, Will Henry chose right and saved Aaron Morgan's kick to give the Beaver the advantage.

Leon Solomon and Michael Kamara for the Beavers and Adam Louth for the 'hall then converted their kicks to give Hampton a 3-1 led from the spot, before Will Henry then saved Ben Long's kick, giving Brendan Kiernan the chance to seal the result.

Brendan stepped up and lashed the ball high into the top right hand corner to give the Beavers a 4-1 win on penalties and a place in the Charity Cup quarter finals away at Enfield Borough, which will mean a trip back to the QE2 Stadium...

Credit to Southall, who were organised and disciplined, and they look to be a good bet for promotion from the Spartan South Midland League One this season on the basis of that display.
