El Sol 1, Marlborough 5

EL Sol's great run in the the Sunday Senior Cup ended in disappointment in the final at Carrow Road.

After a nervy start, El Sol took the lead in front of 560 fans with the first real chance on seven minutes, a long kick from goalkeeper Taurean Molloy allowing Andrew Pantelli to dispatch a looping first-time effort over the stranded Chris Hill.

Malborough were quick to respond, Colin Wines' in-swinging corner sailed over everyone and into the far corner of the net.

Norwich-based Marlborough took the lead with Jason Armes' 31st-minute bullet header.

Soon after the re-start El Sol almost grabbed an equaliser when Hill spilled a shot from distance, however, the Marlborough back line did well to scramble substitute Roy Coe's effort off the line after he had rounded the keeper.
