12th October 2008 - Royals through on
Royals were tested to the extreme this
afternoon at Shrewsbury Sports Village.
However after an equally matched game, it
will be Royals who are in the draw for the
semi final of the league cup.
Royals were not at their best but could
have scored 4 or 5, but for a string of
outstanding saves by the Colts' keeper. In
the end it was Shrewsbury who took the lead
early in the second half. Royals then had to
dig deep and Moffat scored the equaliser
with a superbly headed goal from a Hearle
corner, with just minutes remaining.
Extra time came and went without either
side being able to take the lead. Penalties
came and Royals finally won 3-2, with Green,
Miles and Lewis each scoring theirs.

flooded north of Church Stretton making it
difficult to pass.
