With my first choice matches today, down in Sussex, both falling victim to frozen pitches, then my next 2 choices, both in Kent, having Twitter accounts that had not been updated. I decided on this match, as they had tweeted around 12 o’clock that the match was on, even though it was between two clubs that play in the same league, the Surrey County Intermediate League (Western), Premier Division and with this being 4th v 2nd in the league table, it looked like a decent match up. It certainly was, being in the balance throughout and contained some goals that were of very high quality for this level.
Lyne equalised in the last minute, to make it 4-4, but we then had five minutes of added time. We were expecting extra time, especially as the match had kicked off half an hour earlier than if it had been a league fixture, but it was straight to penalties. Lyne went first, scoring their first three kicks, to lead 3-1 in the shootout, but missed their next two. Having missed their second penalty, Horsley converted their next three to go through to the next round.
