AFC’s cup participation this season came to an end with a loss in extra time to Sporting 50. Zuko Awkuba was lost in the opening minutes to injury before the Counts conceded a soft goal to go behind. Ben Macey then equalised, leaving the sides level at half-time.
AFC were far from their best in the second half but a late Dara Obakin goal looked set to put us in the next round until Sporting 50 responded straightaway.
Sporting took the lead in the first half of extra time with a good finish from their centre forward, and AFC couldn’t muster a response. As AFC poured bodies forward, Sporting 50 sealed their place in the next round of the cup with a goal on the break in the dying moments.
