Vase round-up

Dave Painter proved to be the hero as St. Blazey progressed to the Second Round Qualifying of The FA Carlsberg Vase at the expense of Camelford.

The goalkeeper made the decisive penalty save during a nervy shoot-out, to give St. Blazey a 5-4 victory after the tie had gone all the way to spot-kicks.

The First Round Qualifying replay proved to be just as tight as the first meeting had been on Saturday, where the two sides played out a 0-0 draw.

Indeed, it was not until a combined 190 minutes of football that the tie finally had it’s first goal when Seb Bloomfield gave St. Blazey the lead.

However the forward’s 73rd-minute strike was cancelled out by Kyle Flew just moments later, forcing the tie into extra-time.

An additional 30 minutes saw no further goals and in the end it was left to Painter to save the crucial penalty and hand St. Blazey a spot in the next round.

Cadbury Heath and Team Solent also endured a late night on Wednesday after their Vase replay went all the way to extra-time again.

The pair had drawn 3-3 on Saturday after 120 minutes of football, with Team Solent scoring in the dying moments to force another meeting.

However Cadbury Heath were able to see of their opponents at home, picking up a 2-1 win after extra-time.

All ties played on Wednesday proved to be tight affairs, with just nine goals scored across the four replays taking place.

Stone Old Alleynians and Phoenix Sports were the two other teams who progressed to the next round, with the duo both picking up home wins.

Stone Old Alleynians overcame Ellesmere Rangers 2-1, while Phoenix Sports defeated Croydon 1-0 courtesy of Alex Nelson’s first-half volley.
