WGC Res won this hard fought Reserve Challenge Trophy second round tie against Ware's Wodson Park Res on a sudden death penalty shoot-out after the sides were locked at 1-1 during 90 minutes.


The much postponed tie went straight to a penalty shoot-out and again couldn't be separated after five spot-kicks apiece, being locked at 3-3.


Finally, Neil Draper's side got through to go on to away clash in the quarter-finals of the competition, to Luton's Crawley Green Res, that will be played next Saturday, February 6.


The two goals scored in normal time were of the highest order. WGC Res took the lead, when a Jordan Tring effort was blocked and from 20 yards out, the fit-again Nathan Dimmock curled in a beautifully judged effort over the Wodson keeper.


The Ware side equalised late in the game with a fine effort of their own, that beat an impressive Freddie Hester in the home goal, who had been in top form.

Welwyn Garden City Reserves 1 - 1 Wodson Park Reserves (WGC win 5-4 on pens)
