Hawkins sees Wizards into last four

MERLINS Bridge booked their place in the semi-finals of the West Wales Cup on Saturday as they eased to a 5-2 win over Plough Colts.

Nathan Greene gave the Wizards the lead in the first half as he headed home into the bottom corner.

Adam Hawkins also came close but missed a good opportunity to double the home side’s lead.

The home side could have had more goals as they missed a number of chances but they did eventually make it 2-0 with half an hour gone when Dai Davies sent a shot into the top corner.

Hawkins scored his second and the home side’s fourth in the second half and Joe Leahy all but sealed their passage as he scored to make it 5-1.

Callum Davies did pull a late goal back for the Colts but it was just a consolation.

The Wizards will now look forward to finding out their semi-final opponents but before that they return to league action on Satuday (Mar 9) when they travel to Marble Hall to take on Milford United.
