Park Ladies beat Isleham United to progress in Women's Invitation Cup

Park Ladies 3, Isleham United 0

Women's Invitation Cup

After late drop-outs left Park without subs, they started well, stringing several good moves together and showing intent early on. It took 11 minutes for the deadlock to be broken, a ball from Erin Powell finding Georgia Stimson who drove into the area and had time to pick her spot and slot home for 1-0.

Isleham were looking to cause an upset and mounted several promising attacks of their own, but a good one-on-one block by Sian Holcroft denied them a leveller.

Park kept probing for an opening but just not finding the target, going close on several occasions. Isleham also pushed forward looking to get back into the game but the Park defence held firm to lead by one goal at half time.

The home side took the game to Isleham after the break and managed to add their second when Hana Howsam played a square ball through to Fran Plitsch who shot on the turn to make it 2-0.

An Eilish Brown corner was then headed over by Charlotte Marshall and Plitsch had an effort ruled out for a foul before Powell scored the third form the edge of the box with nine minutes remaining.

Park's reward is a tough home quarter-final draw against Histon.

POM: Fran Plitsch - dominated in midfield.
