Keeper Williams strikes Village winner
North Village 3 Devonshire Cougars 2
Goalkeeper Jason Williams grabbed a sensational winner for North Village against Devonshire Cougars in a Dudley Eve semi-final at Somerset Cricket Club last night.
Williams struck his first goal of his career directly from a goal kick that bounced twice before looping over his opposite number Che Clarke between the sticks for Cougars.
Villages skipper Sammy DeGraff had earlier notched Villages first two goals, while Lejuan Simmons and Kwame Steede were on target for Cougars.
Simmons struck for Cougars before DeGraff grabbed the equaliser on the stroke of half-time. DeGraff then put his side ahead for the first time before Williams bizarre winner.
There was late drama after Steede scored in the dying minutes but it was too little too late for last years Cougars, who were beaten in last years final by Village.
DeGraff said: It would be unfair to say that we dominated the game, it was a different sort of winner but we will progress, said DeGraff.
I wouldnt say that we have had the better of them because we have had three battles but we manage to come out on top.
Both sides let in soft goals but also scored good goals so it was entertaining.
From what I know it is Jasons first goal in his career, but his first sends us to defend our final, so we are happy.
