The Jags good run of form continued with an outstanding victory over a solid Pumas side, these two sides have had some tough battles over the last 12 months and this tie was no exception. With the Jags down to a ‘bare bones’ squad of seven the boys really pulled together with a spirit often seen during their 2007 league title winning season.

Wyrley started the stronger with the home slope advantage which the Pumas gambled on having for the second half. Midfield dynamo Billy Hammond was at the heart of everything the Jags were producing, strong in the tackle and good on the ball with some excellent passing Hammond created and then finished off the opening goal with a move any side would be proud off. Some slick inter-change passing between Hammond and Scott Wilding went wide to Mason Coleman who fired in a first time cross that was cooly side footed past the Pumas keeper to give the Jags a much deserved lead.

Despite the opening barrage Four Oaks character started to show as they worked their way back into the game and the Jags back two of Euan Aston and Ollie Cooper were called into serious action to keep the Jags in front. Wyrley keeper Josh Price then pulled off a fine save tipping a fierce shot onto the bar for a Pumas corner but from there another long range unstoppable effort flew into the Jags goal to pull the visitors level going in to the halftime break.

The second half started as the first ended with both sides attacking and it was the Jags who got their noses in front early with a well taken goal from the ever improving Brandon Garrett. The Pumas pressed hard in search of an equaliser and again Price was called into action with a string of fine saves but as Four Oaks pushed bodies forward the Jags got a third with a long range effort from Man of the Match Ollie Cooper. Deep in his own half with only minutes left Cooper connected with a once in a season strike that passed several Four Oaks players on it’s way into bottom corner of the goal sealing a well earned Jags victory!
