Late Teen Goal Sinks Saints As Chelsea Reaches Quarters

LONDON -- Teenager Jody Morris struck a superb goal in the dying minutes of extra time toclinch Chelsea a 2-1 victory over Southampton and a place in the quarter-finals of the English League Cup.


Just as the fourth-round tie appeared to be heading toward a penalty shoot-out Wednesday, the 18-year-old midfielder showed composure, placing his shot from the edge of the area into the top right-hand corner.


Kevin Davies had given Southampton the lead in the 52nd minute when he beat the offside trap and ran on to a pass from Matt Le Tissier. Davies flicked the ball over advancing Chelsea goalkeeper Kevin Hitchcock to score.


But nine minutes later Chelsea's Norwegian striker Tore Andre Flo scored a brilliant equalizer, moving into the box from the right to fire a left-foot shot inside the right-hand post.


In the other match of the night midfielder Frank Lampard hit a hat-trick as West Ham destroyed second division Walsall 4-1.

Kaiserslautern is now four points ahead of second-placed Bayern Munich, the reigning champion.
