Bridgwater Town claim cup scalp in dramatic shoot-out
10:07am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
BRIDGWATER Town booked their place in the next round of Red Insure Cup with a dramatic penalty shoot-out victory over Truro City at Fairfax Park last night (Tuesday October 22).
After a 3-3 draw in normal time, the tie went straight to penalties where the Robins triumphed 6-5.
The result is a big scalp for Bridgwater Town, with Truro City plying their trade in the Premier Division of the Calor League.
It's Town's second shoot-out victory of the season, having defeated Chalfont St Peter earlier in the season.
Richard Fey's side fell behind three times during the 90 minutes, only to fight back with goals from Alex Faux and two from Robbins.
Robbins then missed his side's first penalty, but Wilson, Osman, Bushin, Loxton and Miller all scored to secure a place in the next round.
Town return to league action this weekend (October 26), where they take on Mangotsfield United at Fairfax Park, 3pm kick-off.
