GREAT Chishill progressed into the semi-finals of the Lower Junior Cup, overcoming Wisbech St Mary's.
The visitors started the match strongly and put Chishill under pressure with their strong physical approach.
Chishill's Jonathan Drury had the first-half's best chance, but somehow let the ball slip away from his feet.

In the second-half Chishill looked much better, with Steve McGee causing a number of problems for Wisbech's defence.
And as the half wore on, it was clear that the visitors just could not handle his trickery in and around the box.

And it was such skill that led to Chishill's opening goal, after McGee was felled in the box - with Paul Gibson slotting home the resulting penalty.
With their noses in front, Chishill played with even more confidence and soon made it 2-0, when McGee sent an angled drive curling into the bottom corner from Gareth Edey's pass.
McGee came close again late in the game, but his attempted lob was saved conformably by the keeper.
However, by then Chishill had already wrapped up the points and stretched their unbeaten run to 21 games.
