Bungay 2, Wenhaston United 2 (3-4 penalties)
BUNGAY failed to reach the Wightman-King Cup final, as visitors Wenhaston edged their semi-final 4-3 on penalties on Wednesday after the sides had drawn 2-2.
Wenhaston go on to face Wortwell in the final at the Maltings Meadow on Tuesday, March 30, after Wortwell came from behind to beat Loddon 4-1 in the first semi-final.
Bungay started their semi-final brightly, and almost scored in the first minute, but Hayden Knights fired over from ten yards. The visitors began to move the ball around well and they took the lead after 18 minutes, Chris Gramlick converting a low cross from the right. Bungay were level within two minutes, Billy Davies scoring with a fierce shot from 25yards.
Wenhaston looked the more likely, and they regained the lead 10 minutes before the break, as hesitation in the home defence allowed Scott Haselgrave to score from close range.
The second half was tight, with few scoring chances, but just as it seemed Wenhaston would hold out, Bungay equalised with six minutes left, substitute Justin Doughty scooping the ball in from a corner.
