Windsor were dumped out of the Premier Challenge Cup at the Semi-Final stage for the second season running on Tuesday evening.
Table topping Camberley Town were the victors of a scrappy affair at a windy Stag Meadow.
Camberley started on the front foot against the wind and were unfortunate not to have scored in the opening seconds. Smith latching onto a long ball before shooting straight at Justin Courtnage. Courtnage turning the ball around his post and out for a corner.
After seven minutes Camberley attacked again and the impressive Smith meet the in-swinging cross and saw his header easily saved by Courtnage.
Windsor's first attack came in the tenth minute and it yielded a goal for wide man Kane Jones. The dreaded short corner was worked brilliantly. From the pin point cross Jones found himself unmarked at the back post, Kane duly headed home past Bradshaw to give Windsor a 1-0 lead.
Almost immediately Windsor won a free-kick out wide. Di Giuseppe's cross was spilt by Bradshaw but could not be turned in at the back post by Gould or Kirby. Camberley scrambling the ball clear. Windsor pressed for a second but Camberley held firm and almost scored with Kelsey firing wide after a smart counter attack.
Midway through the first half Minhas was upended by Greenwood, who was shown a yellow card. From the resulting free kick Robert Lazarczuk crashed the ball into the wall. Di Giuseppe reacted quickest and his shot curled narrowly wide of the post.
An exchange of half chances came and went before Camberley forced an equaliser on thirty two minutes. Bunyan scoring from 25 yards after lobbing Courtnage who had come off of his line to clear. Windsor, perhaps still thinking about the equaliser, fell behind within sixty seconds. Having seen an effort hit the post, Camberley's Coles was first to react to force the ball home from six yards.
Into the second half and the first incident of note was Kyle Jeffrey's yellow card for dissent. Both sets of players frustrated by some contentious decisions and letting their frustrations boil over. Kane Jones was cautioned on 56 minutes and was subsequently substituted. Replaced by Omar Riaz. Riaz slotted into the centre of midfield and Lazarczuk moved to the right.
The second half didn't get started until the 70th minute. George Gould raced onto a chip from Riaz but couldn't get the ball over Bradshaw in the Camberley goal. Minutes later Di Giuseppe had a half chance, but could only shoot weekly into the arms of Bradshaw.
Despite the introduction of Barry Dunbar Windsor couldn't muster any further attempts on goal and Camberley secured their place in the final.
