Hednesford Town suffered an evening to forget as they were comprehensively beaten by Chasetown in the semi-final of the Staffordshire Senior Cup.
It was the visitors who started the game the better of the two sides with Ryan Wynter wasting a great chance to open the scoring in just the eighth minute as he flashed his shot wide with just goalkeeper Dan Crane to beat.
After an even spell in the game it was Chasetown who struck first in the 23rd minute when Jack Langston flicked the ball on to Wynter who was able to smash the ball home past Crane.
The Scholars went close again in the 28th minute before they added a second goal two minutes before the half-time whistle when Joseph Thomas managed to squeeze the ball into the net from inside the box.
Things got even better for Chasetown in the 57th minute as they added a third goal when Langston’s free-kick took a deflection and beat Crane.
Hednesford desperately looked for a way back into the game and although Tom Thorley saw a long range effort saved and Tony Clarke fired another effort over the bar they rarely tested Curtis Pond in the Chasetown goal.
Instead it was the Scholars who would strike again as James Dance added a fourth goal in the 90th minute to help send his side into the final of the Staffordshire Senior Cup.
