Bels won the shoot-out 4-3, young goalkeeper Rhys Gower the star of the show saving Rozel’s final two spot kicks from Jerry O’Shea and Stuart Truscott.

Rozel, who overall turned in an excellent performance, were seconds away from winning the match.

Simon Moiani scored a fine individual goal to make it 3-2, the teams were level after 90 minutes, only for Bels to equalise with virtually the final kick of extra-time.

Guernsey’s Priaulx League leaders were two up inside ten minutes but Rozel fought back to be level by the 25th minute – Scott Healey netting both after long balls through Bels’ square defence.

Bels lost 16-year-old starlet Billy Page early on, he dislocated a knee in a fall but after returning from hospital his knee was back in place and what looked a serious injury should now result in only a couple of weeks out of the game.

Page was left unmarked to fire Bels ahead and following the lengthy delay Bels made it 2-0 from the resumption when Sam Cochrane converted with the outside of his boot.

Fifty-one-year-old goalkeeper Graham Le Cornu produced a fine save to keep Bels at bay before Healey’s double put them right back in the game following their slow start.

Both spurned numerous opportunities to have won the game, Bels clearing an effort off their goal-line in the 90th minute.

Moiani scored his fine effort to put Rozel ahead only for Marc McGrath to steal Rozel’s thunder with his last-seconds strike.

Rozel had the advantage in the shoot-out as Le Cornu saved Bels’ first kick.

Bels will meet either St Ouen or Jersey Wanderers in the final later in the season.
