Pershore Town 3 (Baldwin 83', 90+2' Nutt 90+1')
Bromsgrove Sporting 3 (Wise 35', Hayward 42', Ebanks 71')

Pershore Town win 5-4 on penalties.

It was more penalty shootout woe for Bromsgrove Sporting on Tuesday evening, as they crashed out of the Worcestershire Senior Cup at the quarter final stage to Pershore Town, a team three levels lower than the Rouslers.

Sporting looked to be easing to victory as the game headed into the final 10 minutes, as goals from Charlie Wise, Nathan Hayward and Callum Ebanks had given Bromsgrove a solid lead.

However, a brace from super sub James Baldwin, along with a header from Matt Nutt, all inside the final seven minutes, took the game to a penalty shootout.

And it was to be the home side who would progress to the semi finals, with Ebanks' penalty hitting the crossbar and going over being the difference between the sides, the Plums winning 5-4.

Pershore had some chances early on with a few shots from range, but all were relatively easy for Sporting stopper Ollie Taylor to save.

The deadlock was broken in the 35th minute, as Ebanks chested down the ball for Wise, who simply slotted home from close range with a cool finish.

The lead was doubled seven minutes later, as an initial shot from Ebanks was saved by keeper Eddie Cox, but only into the path of Hayward, who knocked in the rebound.

Wise thought he had bagged his second in the 54th minute, as he bundled the ball in at the far post. However, the goal was ruled out for a supposed handball offence.

The third came with 19 minutes remaining - Josh Dugmore found Ebanks with a pinpoint pass, allowing the Cheltenham Town loanee to hammer home into the bottom corner.

The introduction of Baldwin in the 74th minute turned the game on its head completely. Firstly, his 83rd minute effort from a tight angle found the net via the post.

Then, Nutt's looping header in the first minute of additional time brought Pershore to  just one goal behind. The home side then bagged the leveller just one minute later, as Baldwin, after evading the Sporting defence, found himself with an empty goal to strike into - an opportunity he did not waste.

The penalty shootout ensued. Ebanks missed Sporting's third spotkick to give Pershore the upper hand, and with the Plums not missing any of their penalties, it would be they who progressed; Baldwin with the final penalty to win it.
