FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round – Saturday, 12th October, 2002

Moor Green 3 Halesowen Town 1

Moor Green progressed thanks to two penalties despite Halesowen dominating the opening half of a game that saw eight strict bookings and a sending off.

Halesowen made a lively opening and took an early 10th minute lead when Richard Leadbeater played a long ball for Jason Ashby to shrug off Peter Faulds before rounding goalkeeper Adam Rachel to slot home. The Yeltz continued to dominate with their neat passing and Stuart Skidmore shot from a wide angle with Rachel collecting at the foot of the post in the 29th minute.

The Moors found themselves level against the run of play on 40 minutes when Danny Scheppel was brought down in the box after a dangerous run by Martin Myers and Lamey duly converted from the penalty spot.

Halesowen continued to press with two corners at the start of the second half before a Reece cross forced Chris Gillard into a desperate 53rd minute clearance for the exposed home defence. On 58 minutes Rachel made a fine blocking save from Ashby and Halesowen paid dearly when Stanley broke up the field and put Scheppel clear to beat Clarke from 15 yards to give the home side the lead. With Moor Green taking control, Scheppel found room in the visiting defence in the 80th minute but Clarke made a fine save from 15 yards.

Lamey wrapped up the game from the penalty spot in the 86th minute after the referee took a long look at a trip on Scheppel by Lee Collins. Lee Collins was then given a straight red card by the referee for a 90th minute foul.
