TRON faced an uphill task against a quality Bournemouth side, Football for Cancer FC, in the semi-finals of the Hampshire Sunday Senior Cup on Sunday, writes TONY SPENCER.
The visitors were probably the best footballing side that Tron had ever faced, with their three forwards outstanding.
Tron found themselves two down after 10 minutes, but two strikes from Ross Cook evened up the scoreline to 2-2 by the interval.
Just after the break, however, the visitors converted a penalty and proceeded to stun Tron with three quick goals to lead 6-2.
Cook managed to complete his hat-trick, but in the end Tron lost 8-3.
Bramley United reached the final of the Hampshire Sunday A Cup final after they beat a strong Gosport side, Bridgemary Eagles.
This sets up a clash with Freehouse who beat Portsmouth Royals 3-2, and they have only lost twice in 21 matches this season.
In their semi-final, Bramley took the lead through Les Wood on 15 minutes after Simon Goff's corner and Ramsey Lewis' shot on target was parried into Wood's path.
Shortly after this, Darren McWilliam passed to Adam Bartlett, who made it 2-0 at half time.
The second half was a closer contest and with 20 minutes to go the Eagles pulled a goal back.
However, 10 minutes later Tim Barnett passed to Jamie Ward who worked the ball up the right wing to Lewis, he held the ball up well, before knocking it McWilliam in the centre to make it 3-1.
