St Andrews 2-1 Radford

Radford hung on bravely with ten men but two minutes into time added on a defensive blunder gave St Andrews victory.

Radford started off well and were in command for the first twenty minutes. Kenny Reeves had a deflected shot go wide of the goal before scoring with a tap in  after good work by Joe Heggerty. Radford were winning many aerial challenges but it all turned pear shape when Phil Granville was shown a red card on 40 minutes after he made a challenge leaving a St Andrews player clutching his head. Several free kicks were awarded to the home side and from one of these Dan Henfrey headed in the equaliser for St Andrews just before half time.

At the start of the second half Dunning pulled off a brilliant one handed save to deny Shay Brennan. St Andrews missed a hatful of chances and the Radford defence were performing heroics. Radford created a breakaway chance but the ball fell to Carey Knight who hit the ball wide of the goal with his wrong foot. The game was looking like it would end in a draw but 2 minutes into time added on Dunning was caught in possession and the ball bundled into the net by Shay Brennan.
