New, comments

chelseayouth.jpgThe Chelsea youngstas booked a place in the FA Youth Cup semifinals Tuesday night.

They dominated Port Vale 5-2 at Vale Park, a sublime hat-trick from Frenchman Gael Kakuta the highlight of the night. Morten Neilsen and Miroslav Stoch added to the tally.

Vale scored boths of its goals in the second half, the first through Jonathan Compton on a penalty while the second came via a Danny Glover -- of Lethal Weapon fame -- free-kick.

Kakuta opened the scoring in the 13th minute, doubling his total in the 27th with a scathing effort. He completed the three-piece in the 67th from point-blank range.
