Cup Finalists Zion Athletic Squad + Route To The Final

Route to the Final:Our Cup run started off with a very good 3-1 win against Connect Sports. It was a very tight game with Connect leading 1-0, but a goal from Shawn and 2 wonder strikes from Richard Stewart sent us into the next round. Our next match was against Renewal Solihull who were reduced to 10 men early on, (as we were later on). This was a cracker of a game. Twice Renewal took the lead only for us to draw level and into injury time we went. Renewal again took the lead and we managed to draw level again to force a penalty shoot out. Our keeper made 3 saves and we were through. The next tie saw us against Corinthians SK and again we had to come from behind to win but we were through 3-1 and the draw gave us a repeat of last seasons Final with a game against All Saints Olympic. Reduced to 10 men after 2 minutes and up against a very good All Saints Olympic team and things looked tough. They went 1-0 up but we forced an equaliser. Their winger then had a terrific finish, 2-1 to them. We kept battling away and forced another equaliser leading to extra-time. Another player dismissed for us and it was 8 behind the ball and 1 up top, but we managed to take the lead and Shawn then completed his hat-trick, a 4-2 win with a great performance.
