Liversedge enjoy shoot-out success

LIVERSEDGE progressed to the fourth round of the NCEL Cup on Tuesday night with a penalty shoot-out win over Goole.

Following a goalless first half, Goole broke the deadlock two minutes into the second half through Reagan Waud.

But Liversedge turned things around with two goals in the space of three minutes. Jake Thompson got the first before Oliver Fearon but them in front for the first time.

The hosts had 20 minutes to hold on but their lead lasted only a matter of seconds as Waud netted his second of the match to level at 2-2 and take the game to penalties.

Goole’s first penalty was saved and the third was missed to give Sedge the advantage, and they were faultless from the spot themselves to go through to the next round.

Last week’s postponement against Staveley Miners Welfare saw Liversedge slip out of the NCEL Premier Division promotion places but they can return to the top three if they beat third-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare away from home tomorrow (Saturday, kick-off 3pm).
