Rushall welcomed Evo Soccer for this cup fixture in perfect conditions.
Rushall started brightly but were unable to break down a resolute Evo Soccer defence, as the visitors settled into their game. Rushall had a couple of opportunities through Harris and Oli Cooksey on the counter but couldn't find the target after smart build up play.
As the half progressed Rushall where indebted to Sam Cooksey who made a series of fine saves to keep the scoreline level as Evo Soccer got into their stride. As the half drew to a close Rushall came back and Oli Cooksey flashed a shot wide of the post after great work from Harris and Hodgkiss.
The second half was pretty much the same as both teams ebbed back and forth with Evo Soccer looking more likely to score as both defences cancelled each other out.
With 8 minutes remaining Evo Soccer got their noses in front as they caught Rushall napping on the counter with a fine instinctive goal. With Rushall pushing forward for an equaliser Evo Soccer completed a fine move to put the game to bed in the dying seconds to go through to the next round of the cup.
Everyone at Rushall wishes Evo Soccer all the best in the next round, as on the day they were the better side and deserved to go through.
Good luck for the rest of the season boys.
