AN 80TH minute strike from Matt Foster sent
Silhill through to the BCFA Junior Cup Final.
Karl Rogerson and John Bradley had put the visitors 2-0 up before Ben Huskisson and Paul Arnold levelled the scores.
But there was no stopping Foster late on as he wrapped up the win.
Highgate United 0
Coalville Town 6
AN EMBARRASSING defeat against Coalville Town ended Highgate’s six-game unbeaten run in the Midland Alliance.
The promotion-chasing side inflicted the crushing defeat on Peter Frain’s men after their recent fine form had propelled them up to 14th in the league.
First half goals from Martin Thompson, Craig Noble and James Dodd put the visitors 3-0 ahead at the break.
Lewis Dodd added a brace in the second half and Noble notched his second of the afternoon to
complete the rout.
Tomorrow Highgate visit Cradley Town.
Cadbury Athletic 0
KNOWLE had new-boy Steve Barrett to thank as his second half goal helped the Robins see off Cadbury Athletic in the Midlands Combination Premier.
In only their second home game of the year, Dave Cox’s men produced a professional job to earn themselves the three points.
Buto Sibanda was causing the away side all sorts of problems with his pace but there was no way through until Barrett converted Nathan Hands’ cross.
Meanwhile Andy Richmond scored a brace for the reserves as they beat Henley 4-0. Ton Hyland and Darren Bury grabbed the other goals.
Knowle travel to Bolehall Swifts tomorrow.

Cresconians are their hosts tomorrow.
