HUMBLEDON and Plains Farm’s Durham County Sunday Cup success at Hendersons Butchers will go down in folklore, with 16 goals scored, including five against the reigning FA Sunday Cup holders.
First Division Hendersons took a stunning 3-0 lead when Jack Devlin ran Plainsy’s defence ragged and hit two goals, with Carl Old nodding home a third.
Gary Shields and Kane rallied Humbledon, who were given a lift when a poor tackle saw livewire Devlin go off.
Butchers went further ahead at 5-2 with goals from Stoker and Addison, but things changed with 30 minutes to go when Richie Jordan got his second yellow card, reducing them to 10 men.
Plainsy hit back when Kane hit his second, then Butchers thought their luck was in as Coghlan missed a penalty, but their joy was shortlived as Kane again claimed his hat-trick and Kyle Fryatt scored at the death to take the game to extra time.
The visitors’ comeback clearly deflated the Butchers as Plainsy overran them and fired six more goals past keeper Bussey.
James Fairley and Coghlan netted, then O’Neill put a penalty away, but goal machine Paul Kane hit another hat-trick to take his tally to six in the game.
