STAGS STUMBLE TO HAMPSHIRE CUP LOSS
Eastleigh are into the Hampshire Senior Cup final after they edged out AFC Totton.
In a closely-fought match, Jordan Ragguette flashed a fierce ball across the box but no Totton player could get on the end of it.
It was the visitors who took the lead after 20 minutes with Tom BRAGG lashing home from close range after a melée.
Just after the hour mark, Eastleigh should have doubled their lead through Brendon Wilson’s header.
The Stags were so close to equalising when Ethan Taylor blasted past the post following Hisham Kasimu’s lay-off.
Lewis Noice’s incredible double save kept Totton in the tie and Eastleigh hit both posts as they made the showpiece finale at their home ground.
