Hargreaves: Benji was superb

AFC Bournemouth knocked Eastleigh out of the Hampshire Senior Cup following a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory on Tuesday night.

The Cherries faced the Conference South side at New Milton's Fawcetts Field in the Quarter Finals of the competition after enjoying comprehensive victories over Winchester City and Fleet Town.

AFC Bournemouth development squad coach Chris Hargreaves named a mixed side for the game, first team members Joe Partingon, Donal McDermott and Lorenzo Davids were joined by development squad members Josh Carmeichel, Jamal Bajandouh, Aristide Bassele, AFCB Vital sponsored Josh Wakefield and Benjamin Buchel.

The rest of the team was made up from the youth team.

Eastleigh took the lead through Cory King on the hour mark, but Brandon Goodship scored an equaliser just twenty minutes later.

With extra time looming, Eastleigh were awarded a penalty for handball, Cory King stepped up to score his second of the night only for Benjamin Buchel to save his spot kick.

The resulting clearance was to fall to Anthony Harris who was fouled by Eastleigh's Charlie Basilone who was shown a straight red card.

Despite going down to ten men Eastleigh took the lead once again in extra time with an excellent long range effort, before more drama followed in the final minute of extra time.

A corner from Lorenzo Davids fell to Jamal Bajandouh who hit the target and took the game to a penalty shoot out.

Partington, Baselle, Wakefield and Davids all scored for the Cherries, but Benjamin Buchel was the eventual hero, saving a further two penalties to claim a hat-trick of penalty saves on the night.

The Cherries now progress through to the semi-finals of the competition where they could meet former AFC Bournemouth manager Lee Bradbury's Havant & Waterlooville if they can get past Sholing in their rearranged quarter-final.

Hargreaves told afcb.co.uk...

"It had everything. Goals, saves, a red card, a shoot out, it was incredible.

"There was great resilience from the lads and I`m really pleased for them. It was an achievement and a moment for them to enjoy...'

'...We kept our nerve then in the penalty shoot out Benji was superb, The players showed at the end what it meant to them and they deserved that because of the great shift they put in."
