United bow out of FA Vase after another epic battle is settled on penaltiesDate: 06 December 2017 at 06:54 by Keith Green
United started the game in horrendous fashion and found themselves 3-0 inside 40 minutes. They then came out in the second half a completely different team and went about taking the game to a buoyant sporting outfit. United left it very late though with 3 quick fire goals in the last 10 minutes to take the game into extra time. They had a chance to steal the tie when Aaron Opoku hit the post in the 1st period of extra time but couldn't find that elusive winner despite having a dam good go. Penalties ensued and after both teams nerves started to fray, it was Sporting who held out to score the winning penalty to make it 4-3 and progression into the next round.
