Silhill humbled in senior cup

Desi 5 Silhill 1

Desi 5 Silhill 1

SILHILL's miserable start to the season continued as they were dumped out of the AFA Senior Cup by Division Three leaders Desi.

The Premier league strugglers fell victim to the in-form side after failing to convert early on in the game.

Tomorrow they take on relegation-threatened Flamengo at Thimblemill Road Recreation Centre in the hope of making up for last week's disappointing defeat.

Man-of-the-match Simeon Faure was the main difference between the two sides last week as he tormented the Sils backline throughout.

A second half hat-trick for the talented winger followed earlier goals from Trushal Powell and Jason Blick.

Jamie May pulled one back for Silhill but it proved to be only a consolation.
