South pay the penalty

The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

South Manch­ester Sports saw their tre­ble dreams crushed with a heart­break­ing penalty shootout de­feat against PWC in the Ac­coun­tants League Cup.

The quar­ter-final took 30 min­utes to get go­ing and it was South top-scorer Adam Lavin who put Dar­ryl Lee’s troops ahead with an ex­cel­lent strike from 20 yards.

PWC lev­elled early in the sec­ond half but South ral­lied and Mike Strat­ton re­stored the lead with a bul­let header on 60 min­utes.

Har­vey Kaye spurned a golden op­por­tu­nity to seal the win and PWC added in­sult to in­jury with a sec­ond equaliser min­utes later.

The tie went straight to penal­ties with Lavin miss­ing South’s fifth ef­fort.

South Manch­ester man­ager Dar­ryl Lee said: “We had chances to put the tie to bed and they hung on for the last 15 min­utes, just about keep­ing us out.

“We de­served to win but that’s the agony of cup foot­ball.”
