Freethorpe 0-3 East Harling …

Freethorpe 0-3 East Harling
The first team travelled towards the coast on Saturday looking to progress to the semi finals of the Norfolk Junior Cup but faced a team from the league below that already taken a big scalp in the previous round when they knocked out Gayton United from division 2.
Team news saw a few noticeable changes with Jason Dalton replacing the absent Woodcock in the greens goal and Bareham coming into the starting line-up in place of Laws.
There was also a place on the bench for midweek signing Luke Halil.
The visitors got off to a bright start and the skipper Durrant was unlucky to see his low effort cleared off the line from a Tarft corner.
Webb then collected an Allin throw in to turn and shoot and going so close to goal of the season but saw his volley hit the angle of the crossbar and wide from 30 yards out.
Webb then headed twice over the bar and Senior fired wide before they eventually got the opener.
A Morris free kick was headed clear before being hooked back in to the box for Bareham to steer home on the volley from 12 yards.
Almost immediately after the goal, the home side had a big chance to equalise when the striker raced onto a poor back pass but his shot produced a stunning save from Dalton.
With the game now going end to end, the visitors then had a chance to double their lead when Tarft latched onto a Webb flick on to turn his man but fired well over in a one on one situation.
Back came the hosts and when a corner was not cleared properly the ball was somehow blazed over from 6 yards in a muddy and crowded penalty area.
The away side then forced a series of corners and eventually doubled the advantage in spectacular fashion. Tarft delivered, Bareham knocked down and Durrant produced a superb overhead kick to bring back memories of the previous round.
Minutes later the game was effectively put out of reach when Senior raced onto an imaginative Webb flick on to slot home casually past the keeper for a 0-3 lead.
The second half started very differently as the visitors looked to dictate the game and slow the home side down.
Webb had the ball in the net but was adjudged to have fouled in the box and the big man then powered over when through on goal only minutes later.
The visitors then handed a debut to Luke Halil when he came on in place of Dunkinson.
A moment of controversy in the 67th minute as a melee occurred following a rash challenge by Morris. When all was settled the ref made the correct decision by booking Morris and showing a red to the home keeper.
Halil found himself in on goal after more good work from Webb but the sub keeper produced a brave block.
Bray then came on in place of Senior.
A defence splitting ball from Webb found Halil in on goal again but this time the debutant struck the woodwork as the debut goal still evaded the substitute.
Bray then got in on the action as he beat two men on the edge of the box but unfortunately he fired straight at the keeper.
No more goals as the referee blew for full time and the greens had made it through to the semi finals which is an amazing achievement and proud moment for all involved.
