Foxton 2 (4-2 PENS) 2 Linton

Foxton hosted holders Linton, in the Premier League cup on Saturday and came out victorious, after a penalty shoot out.

The first half was mainly a Foxton affair, however, in a similar theme to recent matches, they found themselves 2-0 behind at HT.

With plenty of work to be done in the second half, Foxton got back in the game on about the hour mark, when Roger Skeggs picked up Ryan Phillips pin point cross, and coolly finished after beating his marker.

Foxton’s then equalised via the spot, after the referee awarded a penalty to the home team for a foul in the box. Jez stepped up and scored with aplomb to make it 2-2.

Then in the final few minutes, Skeggs had a chance to nick it when he raced goalwards, but his shot went over the cross bar.

So a penalty shoot out it was……

Pen 1…     Jez GOAL
