Worthians lose out in penalty shoot-out

Highworth Town 0-0 Salisbury FC Salisbury win 5-4 on penalties

An excellent game of football at the SAVE ON TYRES Stadium in the CCS Southern League Challenge Cup somehow ended goalless after 90 minutes with the visitors then winning 5-4 on penalties.

The match, which was played in an excellent spirit, was an end-to-end affair with chances a plenty at both ends throughout.
The visitors probably edged the first half with some great defending keeping the Worthians out although Sidibi and Ferguson both went close for the home side.

The second half saw Highworth create several half chances with shots from the edge of the penalty area but at the other end Connor Johns made a couple of fine stops to keep the score sheet clean. Salisbury's introduction of Zack Kotwica made life difficult for Highworth as he made numerous runs from midfield but the home side generally coped well.

Salisbury did hit the bar from close range near the end but the best chance of the game came in the 95th minute when Ash Edenborough was fed through on goal only for visiting keeper Jake Hackett to make a great block at the forward's feet.

The only penalty not converted in the shoot out was by Highworth's Toumani Sidibi whose effort was saved.

136 spectators enjoyed a very decent game and although Highworth were without several players through injury or unavailability the team performance bodes well for Saturday's home league game versus Blackfield & Langley, 3.00 KO.
