Ah..the magic of the Cup!

First division versus Fifth, but for long periods of this game you couldn’t tell who was who. Bathelona went 2-0 up but the tide started to turn in our favour after Luke scored just before the break. In the second half it was all Ultras. Luke with another and Simon (scoring his first goal for the team) putting us 3-2 up. A controversial offside goal meant that Bathelona pegged us back before Luke rounded off his hat trick to make it 4-3 with six minutes left. We were within sniffing distance of another Cup shock! But then…oh no with the last kick of the game Bathelona hit a screamer into the bottom left hand corner of Martin’s net and the ref blows. Penalties it is.

But the Ultras’ resolve holds. Tim Knight, Luke and Ben all scored and when Bathelona skied their fourth, Simon kept his nerve and then Martin the keeper hit the winning penalty. Cue an Ultras bundle and much celebration on the touchline.

So the Ultras march onto the last 16. We’ve now got St Marys Old Boys in the next round. Bring ’em on!
