Bridgnorth Town 5 Racing Club Warwick 1
RACING crashed out of the FA Vase at the second qualifying round stage following a heavy defeat at Crown Meadow on Saturday.
Racing’s hopes of causing an upset against their unbeaten Midland Alliance hosts never materialised and they finished well beaten.
The visitors held out for 35 minutes before Ryan Guryn opened the scoring by punishing a mistake from keeper Kevin Tobin.
Bridgnorth doubled their advantage just before the break when Liam Bood pounced to convert the rebound after Tobin had parried an intiial effort from Kevin Buxton.
Racing’s fate was sealed ten minutes after the break when Craig Richey handled in the area and Jason Pike connfidently converted the resulting penalty.
The visitors fell further behind midway through the second half when Karl Griffiths fired home, while substitute Clayton Johnson added a fifth goal 20 minutes from time.
Racing reduced the arrears after 76 minutes with a close range strike from Raj Virk but it was merely a consolation effort and Bridgnorth were unlucky not to add to their tally when Pike rattled the post with a well struck shot.
Racing return to Athium Midland Combination Premier Division action when they entertain Brocton on Saturday (3pm) which is followed by a trip to Atherstone Town on Tuesday (7.45pm).
