MANCHESTER ACCOUNTANTS LEAGUE CUP QUARTER-FINAL
SOUTH MANCHESTER SPORTS CLUB 1st 3 MIAM MIAM 2
South Manchester Sports Club warmed-up for the Peter Morrison semi-final with a convincing 3-2 victory over Old rivals Miam Miam in the League Cup.
Missing nine players through injury and holidays, SMSC made the much better start and should have been two up within the first five minutes, but found the Miam keeper in inspired form.
The breakthrough came after 20 minutes when a superb build-up which started with the keeper and included 15 passes ended with a tap-in for Toby Levy.
The next goal was crucial and SMSC made it two through Marc Parry (a collectors item) in the second half. Soon after it was three, with Levy scoring from the spot.
SMSC took their foot off the pedal at the end and will be disappointed to have allowed Miam back into it with two late goals but they will be delighted to have made it into another semi-final and continue with their treble charge.
South boss Jody Marks told JC Sport: "With so many changes, I am delighted with the way we applied ourselves. Having three 16-year-old boys making their debuts was special and the treble is still on.
"Now we look forward to playing our friends Oakwood next week and hopefully our injury list will improve come Sunday."
