Five-star Denver through to semi-finals


Graver Cup


Denver 5 Hunstanton 2 (AET)

Denver booked their place in the last four with an extra-time victory over NWNL Division Two leaders Hunstanton.

After soaking up some early pressure, Jesse Tierney netted to take his tally into double figures for the season.

Hunstanton levelled going into the interval, before a fantastic pass from Calum Clark found Simon Harvey who fired Denver back in front.

Hunstanton levelled matters for a second time from a free-kick and the woodwork denied Denver’s Darren Thorpe a winner in normal time.

Denver’s superior fitness showed and the three substitutes, Ross Lockwood, Gary Green and Robbie Jackson all allowed the home side to dominate the play in extra-time.

Thorpe rose highest from Aidan Hood’s long throw and his header squirmed underneath the ‘keeper before Clark found Matthew Wolfe, who coolly finished his one on one to put the game to bed.

Denver inflicted more misery on Hunstanton when a fantastic one-two with Andrew Carter put Hood in to complete the scoring.

PKS/Morris Armitage MoM: Jesse Tierney who led the line superbly.
