Walsall got the game underway and soon went close to opening the scoring as striker Will Shorrock sent an effort just wide of goalkeeper Payne's goal.

The young Saddlers opened the scoring sixteen minutes into that half as Jordon Sangha and Maz Kouhyar, who both recently penned their first professional contracts, combined to see Kouhyar slam the ball home from distance, a great finish from the midfield man.

Walsall went on to double their lead a few minutes later as Cameron Peters superbly flicked the ball into the patch of Shorrock who volleyed home from the edge of the Pilgrims' area.

The visiting side's woes were added to a matter of minutes later as Brendan Pooni tapped the ball home following Nathan Owen's woodwork-bound effort.

Walsall further extended their lead just before halftime as Nathan Owen smashed the ball over the line following a goalmouth scramble.

Before the second half got underway, Walsall made their opening change as Tobias Hayles-Docherty replaced Maz Kouhyar in the middle of the park.

Boston United kicked off the second half, and had a huge task in front of them if they were going to get themselves through to the competition's final.

Despite their dominance, the Saddlers didn't add to their goal tally during the early kickings of the half but did go on to make another change as Ashley Maddocks replaced Cameron Peters in attack.

Walsall scored their fifth goal of the game with seventy-minutes on the clock as Will Shorrock, who combined well with Brendan Pooni, beat his marker and grabbed his second goal of the evening.

Shorrock was unable to complete his hat-trick however as fellow forward Kyle King replaced him soon after his second goal had hit the back of the net.

Walsall continued to have chances as the game continued, Brendan Pooni saw a goal waived off for offside while substitute Kyle King rattled the crossbar from distance as their opponents struggled to contain them.

The Saddlers further extended their lead with around seven minutes of the match remaining as Pooni, who was earlier denied his second goal of the game via the assistant referee's flag, tapped home to further demoralise their shell shocked opponents as they exit the competition at the Semi Final stage.
