Knowle U16 2 Halesowen Town 1
Knowle Under 16s are through to the final of the Birmingham County Cup thanks to this gutsy semi final display.
Both teams were survivors of the over 125 teams that first entered and it was Knowle who made the brighter of starts, with two goal scoring chances in the first five minutes. The lads then broke the deadlock through a six yard box scramble, Billy Hewitt poking home from close range.
Town pressure finally told, a Knowle trip resulting in a penalty, however Halesowen pulled the shot wide. Hewitt then hit a wonderful strike to complete his brace.
In the second half, a Town corner evaded the back line to float in under the cross bar and bring the score to 2-1 and make for a nervous last 15 minutes for the home side. Knowle had to with stand long periods of pressure until the final whistle, setting up a final with Marston Green.
