The bell Tills for Lye in big win

The Non-League Football Paper - - FA VASE 2ND ROUND - By Wes An­der­sen

LYE Town booked their place in the third round with vic­tory over lower-ranked Brocton but needed two late goals to fi­nally kill off their bat­tling vis­i­tors.

Lye made the per­fect start when Joe Law­ley fired them into a sec­ond-minute lead af­ter latch­ing on to a Josh McKenzie pass.

It took the home side un­til the 65th minute be­fore they added to their tally but they did so in style with Jack Till latch­ing on to a pin-point 40-yard pass be­fore thump­ing his shot past the keeper.

But the vis­i­tors re­sponded well and re­duced the ar­rears when the Lye de­fence failed to clear a cor­ner and de­fender Adam Wel­don forced the ball over the line.

The MFL Divi­sion One side had dumped fan­cied High­gate United out of the com­pe­ti­tion in the pre­vi­ous round and the goal gave them a fur­ther boost

But they were un­done by two goals in the fi­nal six min­utes. Ash Par­sons-Smith net­ted the home side’s third, turn­ing in the re­bound af­ter a shot had been par­ried by the keeper.

And then it was Dr­eniz Bala who wrapped up the scor­ing when he beat the off­side trap be­fore lob­bing the keeper.
