Crofton Saints 3-0 Braishfield 

Two quick goals against the run of play ended Braishfield's dreams of Southampton Senior League Cup glory.

On a glorious evening, a large vocal crowd gathered at the Testwood Stadium, home of Southern League side AFC Totton hoping to see an upset. 

Despite not playing a competitive match for seven weeks, it was underdogs Braishfield who made the brighter start with several efforts narrowly off-target. However, league champions Crofton soon showed their pedigree and broke the deadlock on 23 minutes when a free-kick was emphatically drilled into the net, and this was soon doubled when a corner was forced home from close range, punishing some slack defending. 

It then got worse for Braishfield when the unfortunate Sam Briggs was forced to retire with a knee injury. Substitute Andy Gregory immediately got involved in the action and went agonisingly close to reducing the deficit, but it was Crofton who scored again after a quick break away. 

Braishfield defended better during the second half and enjoyed a good share of possession but found a well organised Crofton defence hard to break down. They created several half chances but unfortunately it proved to be one of those games when the ball just wouldn't fall right, and their frustration was complete after receiving two red cards late on.
