POISON waltzed into the semi-finals of the North Hants Intermediate Cup with a 5-0 victory away at Whitchurch United Reserves.

Reece Chapman was in top form for Poison with a hat-trick, thanks to wingers Ashley Elward and Carlos Gonzales.

He gave his side a second minute lead when put through by Ricky Vine and, on 20 minutes, Vine made it 2-0. Elward was the provider for the third as he set up Chapman.

Elward was quickly in the action after half-time sending Chapman through, who again gave goalkeeper Gavin Alexander no chance with his hat-trick goal, while Gonzales completed the five-star show with a 20-yard chip.
