The Royal Engineers are into the Woolwich Cup final after a 6-0 demolition of the Infantry in Aldershot.
The win means the Engineers are into their second consecutive final after a loss to the Royal Signals last year.
A rematch of that 2019 cup final remains a possiblity, the Signals face the Royal Logistic Corps in the second semi-final.
The first goal between the Engineers and the Infantry came after just five minutes when Dan Stoneman’s drilled low cross was turned in by Rob Cooper Tomkins inside the six-yard box.
As well as battling each other, the teams also faced off against Storm Brendan with high winds and torrential rain interrupting the flow of the game.
At half-time, there was just the one goal between the two teams but a stunning second-half performance from the Engineers blew away their opponents.
Jack Morby’s cross was converted by Jay Hubbard to make it 2-0 and minutes later, Stoneman took advantage of a wind-interrupted clearance square for Morby to add a third goal.
Cooper Tomkins added his second of the night with a powerful header and the Engineers looked comfortable in the Aldershot storm.
It was soon 5-0 as a mistake from Infantry goalkeeper Liam Whittaker saw him bundle a corner into his own net.
There was still time for the Engineers to complete the rout with a sixth goal.
Dan Bacon’s cross took a wicked deflection to take it past Whittaker, leaving the Engineers to celebrate their place in the final.
