FOOTBALL: Tigers stunned by Hipwell strike

Have your say

Holbeach United’s treble dream ended on Wednesday night as Yaxley dumped them out of the UCL Knockout Cup 1-0 after extra time.

An 112th minute strike from Luke Hipwell settled the last eight tie, meaning the Cuckoos will host Spalding United in the semi finals.

The Tigers never really found their best form at Carter’s Park, with a cross-come shot off the crossbar from Craig Parker the closest they came to scoring.

Although they remain 11 points clear in the UCL Premier Division and have a Lincs FA Senior Trophy final at Sincil Bank to look forward to, the defeat is a big blow to John Chand and his side.
