Bishop's Stortford 0 Hitchin Town 0 (5-4 on pens)

Thursday, August 9 2012

Hitchin caught the classic English disease of failing in a penalty shoot-out when they crashed out of the Herts Charity Cup at Bishop’s Stortford.

The Canaries put on a good show against their Blue Square North hosts with the 90 minutes ending goalless.
In the first period, Luke Gregson had two efforts, the first a shot wide of the target and the second a header that was well saved by Ross Kitteridge.

Stortford went close to scoring on the stroke of half-time when Martin Bennett pulled off a good save from Lewwis Spence.

Stortford substitute Harry Milton went on a surging run, beating two Hitchin players  before driving low and wide but the best chance in normal time fell to Tosan Papo who should have settled the tie.

Ironically, it was Papo who netted the decisive penalty in the shoot-out, with Stortford winning 5-4. The only missed penalty kick was Zak Burke’s.
