Ladies bow out of cup

Ladies S Tech League Cup 2nd Leg

March Town 1

Newmarket 2

The Hares put in a battling performance against top of the table Newmarket as they tried to reduce a two-goal deficit.

Emma Searle scored on 15 minutes. Newmarket equalised with a scrambled goal, and on the stroke of half-time, they got another.

Despite some full blooded tackling from the Hares, chances were few in the second half.

The slippery conditions led to some very hard but fair tackles and St Mary’s were 2-0 up at the break.

The second half saw Town gradually take control of the game. Good work by Zoe Hennels allowed Jade Chamberlain to score a first for Town, only for WSM to break away and beat stand-in keeper Becky Milner, who had an otherwise excellent match.

But player of the match Leah Hall smashed in a free kick, and she converted a penalty after a foul on Chamberlain in the box in a very entertaining match.
