PUBLISHED: 16:40 23 March 2017
Brent’s Wichtor Wachala blasted Middlesex U16s into the semi final of the South East England Schools Cup semi-final with a 2-1 win over Kent.
Middlesex had made the perfect start on just two minutes. Striker James Bromley was hacked down inside the box and Guerin Nimi stepped up and rifled the penalty into the top corner.
Kent rallied and Middlesex had to defend for their lives at times.
Josh Bierne made a superb save from point-blank range but the tie was sealed when Nimi broke into the box and cut the ball back to Wachala to emphatically drive home.
Kent scored a consolation goal a minute from time but it is Middlesex who go through to face Hertfordshire in the last four.
The match will be kick-off at 10.30am on Saturday at Queens school in Bushey.
Middlesex: Cai Burrows, Christos Georgacopoulos, David Oppong-Wiafe, Emre Top, Guerin Nimi, James Bromley, Josh Beirne, Jude Moore, Keith Taziwa, Michael O’Neil (capt), Kyle Mathews, Morgan Whittick, Tashae Gibbons, Simeon Olarerin, Wichtor Wachala
