Welsh Cup: Hakin United upset Taffs Well

HAKIN United produced one of the shocks of the round in the Welsh Cup on Saturday (Oct 8) as they beat JD Cymru South side Taffs Well 4-1.

The Vikings had already knocked out Cymru South outfit Afan Lido in the third qualifying round and the Pembrokeshire side were confident of causing another upset.

And with 21 minutes on the clock it was the Vikings who took the lead, Ashley Bevan scoring off an assist from keeper Sam Franklin.

Seven minutes later though the Wellmen were level as David Lyon found the back of the net.

With the game locked at 1-1 at half time it was still there for the taking in the second half.

Eleven minutes in to the second period it was Hakin who took the lead once more as Nicky Woodrow scored.

Woodrow then set up Shane Walsh to score Hakin’s third goal, making it 3-1 with twenty minutes to go.

Then with thirteen minutes left, the game was all but won as Justin Harding scored the Vikings’ fourth goal of the game.

Hakin were able to see the rest of the game out and can now look forward to their game in the second round of the competition.

After the game, Hakin manager Scott Davies said: “A tremendous performance again against a team playing a high quality of football. We had to manage the game a little different and sacrifice the ball for a bit but make it count when we had it, which we did. As a club it means the world to us to be in the next round.”
