SPORTING BENGAL'S historic FA Cup run came to an end on Saturday following a 4-0 defeat at Ware FC.

Having reached the first preliminary round for the first time in their history, Sporting were handed a tough draw against the Hertfordshire club, who reached the first round of the competition last year.

But Ware made an impressive start and took a deserved lead after 16 minutes when Sam Berry's free-kick was lashed home by John Frendo.

Bengal keeper Pape Diagne made a two fine saves to prevent Ware from doubling their lead minutes later, but he was beaten again midway through the first half when Steve Horsey struck from distance.

Ahbab Hussain and Shahed Ahmed both came close to reducing the deficit before half-time, but Ware added a third goal two minutes after the interval through Louis Bristow.

Ware substitute Xaniel Doku added a fourth goal late on but Sporting were unlucky not to get on the scoresheet when Prince Pipim blasted wide.
