AFC Totton 13
Durley FC 0

AFC TOTTON tore through an outmatched Durley FC, who play seven tiers lower in the football pyramid, to march into the Southampton Senior Cup third round.

The Stags were in no mood to take prisoners in a David vs Goliath tie, adding nine goals to their tally in the second half before a late red card rubbed salt into the Durley wounds.

Playing in front of 267 fans at the Snows Stadium, the hosts exploded into life as soon as referee Lee Nowacki blew his whistle. They created as raft of chances, with the away side just about holding on.

However, the match was beyond Southampton Saturday Football League Senior One's Durley by the 25th minute, with Totton having scored three quickfire goals through Jack Hoey and an Ethan Taylor double.

Durley's resistance crumbled, and the floodgates were thrown wide open, with four goals disallowed for narrow offsides before former Blackfield & Langley FC player Shaq Gwengwe, who had trials at Brentford and Reading, added a fourth before half-time.

Dan Sackman's charges renewed their vicious assault after the restart, and Taylor soon completed his hat-trick before Freddie Read made it six goals with no reply.

It was a special night for the d├ębutantes, with former Manchester City and Southampton defender Pascal Kpohomouh contributing to a clean sheet in his first game, and Harrison Cable adding his name to the scoresheet with the seventh.

Durley's heads had gone at this stage, and the Stags mercilessly kept up the pressure. Taylor scored again before Read and Gwengwe each added a second to their tally.

Player-of-the-match Taylor then notched his fifth goal before Jordan Ragguette scored the game's best to make it 12-0.

A late desperate lunging slide tackle forced referee Nowacki to reduce Durley to 10 before Gwengwe ensured Totton had the final word with his side's 13th and his third strike.
