BAA march on into semi-finals

BAA beat a gutsy St David's in an entertaining FA Cup quarter-final clash at Goose Gosling Field last night.

The home side weathered some early pressure from their First Division opponents before ultimately putting the match beyond the reach of St David's via a clinical display of finishing.

St David's took the match to their heavily fancied rivals and went close to opening the scoring when striker Irvon Van Putten hit a rebound from Kurtis Minors's free kick over the bar.

BAA eventually got a foothold in the match and took the lead through an exquisite finish by forward Victor Capitillo who beat St David's goalkeeper Mikkail Crockwell from a tight angle.

Tyrell Burgess extended BAA's lead early in the second half when he latched onto Drewonde Bascome's through ball and slotted past the exposed Crockwell.

It was pretty much game over for St David's when Nathan Rego skipped past two defenders and fired past Crockwell to make it 3-0.

St David's battled on and were finally rewarded with a consolation goal after Daniels pounced on a defensive mix up and rifled a shot into the roof the net.

St David's threatened again late on but Kontai Burton's initial shot was blocked and Jamal Woodley curled the loose ball over an open net.

BAA will now face holders Robin Hood in the semi-finals.

“The FA Cup is about winning and staying in the competition as long as you can so we move to the next round,” Andrew Bascome, the BAA coach, said.

“We started a little slow. St David's were in the game especially first half when they showed a lot of enthusiasm and desire.

“But I thought we managed the game in the second half when it opened up for us especially after we scored.”

Aaron Lugo, the St David's assistant coach, praised his players for their hard work ethic.

“I am proud of the guys, they worked hard,” he said.

“We had a few injuries and guys not available through cards but they did well.

“They stayed in the game in the first half and we actually should have had the first goal.

“We saw some very good ball from both sides and I'm proud of the guys.”
