STEEPLE Morden Reserves crashed out of the Reg Haigh and Arthur Peck Cup on a warm afternoon as the visitors took full advantage of their opportunities.

With two evenly matched sides the game was always going to be decided on narrow margins and Barrington punished Steeple three times in the first half as they lost the ball whilst attacking.

The Steeple defence was outnumbered and the one-on-one opportunities created gave veteran Tim Tidey little chance in goal.
