Godalming exited the Surrey Senior Cup after a penalty defeat to Camberley Town, after the match had finished 2-2. Godalming had the best chances in the opening exchanges, with Jack Mazzone first firing narrowly past the Camberley post, then having a shot acrobatically tipped over the bar by O’Neal Garniss. Josh Daniels, making his first start for the Gs, had the best chance of the half as he broke through one on one with the keeper, but his shot was saved. Godalming took the lead on 41 minutes, when an Adam Everiss cross was put into the net by a Camberley defender..

 

The visitors equalised just 13 seconds into the second half, when a cross found Emmanuel Quarshie unmarked who finished past Courtnage. De St Croix then struck for Godalming with a low shot to make it 2-1, but 8 minutes later Brad Smith’s scuffed shot snuck inside Courtnage’s post to make it 2-2. The scores stayed level through to 90 minutes, and then through extra time, with both sides looking tired and struggling to create many chances.

 

A penalty shootout followed, and both sides scored their first five penalties, with James Wade then missing Godalming’s sixth, putting the ball over the bar. Emmanuel Quarshie then stepped up to score the winning penalty for Camberley.

 

Godalming XI: Courtnage, Broome, Musgrove, Nimmo, Palmer (MacFarlane), De St Croix, Kiri (Miller), Wade, Everiss, Mazzone, Daniels (Watkins).

Subs not used: Purdy, Beswick.
