The game began with Alleyne’s falling behind very quickly to one goal down. Just before half time, the girls pulled a goal back thanks to Alice Matthews’ hard work. In the second half, they started well and scored quickly – 2-1 in the lead due to a fantastic individual effort by Libby Whittingham who lobbed the keeper to score the goal of the game. Clayton kept pushing in a game that really was end to end, and they gained a goal back (2-2). The game went to extra time, with Alleyne’s coming out on top in the final moments of the game due to a brilliant effort by Katie Wheatley – a clearance by Clayton caught on the half volley which beat their keeper easily.
The team is through to the semi-finals of the Cup!
