Mattishall 4 Sprowston 1
After nine minutes of this Mummery Cup clash the home side were awarded a free-kick for handball on the edge of the box and while the visitors were rearranging their wall Starling strode up to slam the ball into the net leaving keeper still stranded.
The visitors had loud appeals for a penalty turned down but were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the box which came to nothing. In their next attack on 21 minutes Eyre rode two challengers before rounding keeper Pledger to draw Sprowston level.
Hewitt picked up the first booking of the afternoon for harshly kicking the ball away and he saw red on 44 minutes when a strong challenge was adjudged to be a bookable offence.
The second half started with the home side making two changes with Fulcher and Stenner replacing Brett and Campos and Wooden moving up front. Mattishall took the lead after 77 minutes when a long ball was headed on by Wooden for Lewis to net.
On 86 minutes a fine run by Stenner was ended when he was upended in the box and Starling smashed home the resulting spot kick. In the dying minutes Hall broke free and rounded the keeper to make it 4-1 and book a trip to Spixworth on the last Saturday in October.
