Tividale 3 Sporting Khalsa 2 With two late goals at Molineux on Wednesday, May 21, Tividale dramatically added the prestigious JW Hunt Cup to their Midland Alliance title.

Sporting Khalsa had made Tividale pay for failing to make the most of a string of good chances and led 2–1 with six minutes to go but Karl Edwards managed to create a chance for himself in a crowded penalty area to fire in an equaliser.

Extra time seemed certain as the last of four minutes’ added time arrived but after Khalsa keeper Mariusz KIesel had turned a Ryan Winwood drive for a corner, the resultant kick saw the ball find its way to sub Sam Williams who drilled a shot into the corner of the net.

It had all looked plain sailing as Edwards had fired Tividale in front after six minutes from a rebound when a Mark Smith header was blocked on the line.

Sam Pearson glanced a header wide for Khalsa but Tividale looked more menacing as Zak Foster and Mitchell Plows brought fine saves from Kiesel. The keeper’s continued defiance was rewarded when the powerful Mark Habbershaw strode onto a through ball to hammer Khalsa level on 35 minutes.

Before the break Kiesel defied Tividale again when he turned a Foster corner onto the bar and ten minutes into the second half he dived to stop a full-blooded drive from Leigh Downing. Tividale must have though it was not their night when on the hour Liam Hughes scored from the spot after left-back Hayden Williams had been sent sprawling.

Despite all the promptings of man-of-the match David Bellis, Tividale looked liked going unrewarded as Khalsa looked in control. Then came the late drama.

Following an incident as Tividale celebrated their winning goal Khalsa player Jon Cordy was  sent off.

With two first-time finalists a new name had to go on the trophy and no-one could argue Tividale did not deserve the honour.

All proceeds from the competition go to the Beacon Centre for the Blind, whose chief executive Arwyn Jones made the trophy presentations.
