Buildbase FA Vase Round 2

Sporting Khalsa 0 Bromsgrove Sporting 1

Not only is this a tie between the sides in 2nd and 3rd place in the Premier Division but it also pitches last season losing quarter finalists with last season’s losing semi-finalists. With Khalsa inbeaten in 15 games, they probably started the game as narrow favourites particularly as Bromsgrove’s recent away form was patchy. With a big crowd in to witness the final game at The Aspray Arena for some time as work commences on laying a new 3G pitch, most people were predicting a tight affair. Khalsa had the first opportunity of the afternoon, David Meese heading wide from a Carlo Franco cross. In the 6th minute, Liam Holt could have done better, heading a cross over the bar. Khalsa were finding space down the right with full-back Franco a constant threat. In the 13th minute, Franco created space and crossed but no Khalsa forward anticipated the delivery and the ball was cleared. A free-kick from Holt was well delivered into the area and the ball was almost perfect for Tesfa Robinson. Good work from Mykel Beckley teed up Craig Bannister but his shot was into the sidenetting. Bannister then laid the ball off to Meese, but his shot was over the bar. After 25 minutes, Bromsgrove finally began to gain a foothold and start pushing Khalsa back. There were claims for a penalty from Bromsgrove as a shot was blocked by Holt who threw his body in the way with the visitors convinced he had used his hands. On the stroke of half-time, Beckley wriggled free and his shot flew across the face and skimmed the far post.

The talk at half-time was that a piece of brilliance or a mistake was likely to settle this game. In the 47th minute, we were close to the former when Holt hit a speculative volley from 35 yards which was saved by the backpedalling Reece Francis. Five minutes later, Bannister took a free-kick short to Holt, whose low drive was gathered by Francis. Both sides were working exceptionally hard, but chances were at a premium. Khalsa through they had broken the deadlock on the hour mark. They were awarded a free-kick outside the area and Bannister’s effort curled over the wall and off the crossbar. It was the visitors who opened the scoring in the 70th minute. A wonderful Crossfield ball from Jack Wilson beat Luke Adams and picked out John Pykett. Pykett had time to centre the ball and the ever-reliable Jason Cowley was on hand to power home a header. Within a minute, Khalsa had a great chance to level. A cross from the left-hand side picked out Marvin Nisbett in front of goal but his header was misdirected, and it went out for a throw in! Khalsa were given a lifeline in the 80th minute when Nisbett was tripped in the area, the referee having no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Up stepped David Meese but his penalty was brilliantly saved by Francis. Nisbett wasted another chance in the 83rd minute, delaying his shot which allowed the Bromsgrove defence to block. Within a minute, the visitors could have sealed the win when Pykett raced through, but Sam Arnold made a fine save with his legs. The home side through everything at Bromsgrove but they held firm to take their place in Round 3.

A tight game between two well-matched sides which looked like a draw from very early on. The goal from Cowley was a piece of real quality which ultimately settled things.

Review

FA Vase

Last season’s two beaten semi-finalists made it through to round 3 in dramatic fashion. Bromsgrove Sporting travelled to league rivals Sporting Khalsa and progressed thanks to a solitary Jason Cowley goal in the 70th minute. Reece Francis saved a penalty with 9 minutes to go to preserve the Rouslers lead. Coleshill Town were reduced to 10 men when Luke Edwards was sent off with the score at 1-1 at home to Blaby & Whetstone Athletic. That didn’t impact Coleshill as they ran riot winning 8-1 with Jordan Nadat scoring a double hat-trick.

Rugby Town and Wolverhampton Sporting Community couldn’t be separated after 120 minutes with a replay required at Butlin Road.
