Essex Senior clash goes to Dagenham & Redbridge
9:32am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Sport
ESSEX SENIOR CUP: A DOMINANT second half saw Dagenham & Redbridge earn an Essex Senior Cup Quarter-Final with neighbours AFC Hornchurch following a 5-1 victory over East Thurrock United at Victoria Road.
Rocks had taken an 11th-minute lead through David Bryant’s counter attack, but Dagenham levelled the tie 10 minutes later through Dickson. A spectacular start to the second half saw the home side hit cruise control as they took a 4-1 lead before 51 minutes were played.
Dickson again and then Sean Shields and Kurtis Pykes effectively ended the visitors’ spirited challenge. Pykes added his second, and Dagenham’s fifth, with 19 minutes remaining. The final scoreline was harsh on East Thurrock, who had competed with their League Two hosts until the second period.
