Parkfield SC seen off Isleham in their Cambs Invitational Cup quarter final
A chilly afternoon seen Parkfield SC beat Isleham 3-1 in the Cambs Invitational Cup quarter final.
Park looked very nervous and struggled to settle, with Isleham looking for a cup upset and putting the pressure on from the off.
There were good chances for both sides, but it took a good half an hour to break down a resilient Isleham side. Francesca Plitsch received the ball in the area from Georgia Stimson and cut it back to Teagan Pulman, who smashed a shot in from the edge of the box to make it 1-0.
Isleham had several chances of their own, and came close before the break when a long range effort skimmed the bar.
Park went into the break having barely got into second gear in the first half, and knew they had to up their game if they wanted to win.
The second half saw an improved effort and Park started to press more.
They were rewarded when a good diagonal ball from Pulman found Erin Powell; her cross from the by-line found Sophie Fenner in the box, who poked home from close range for 2-0.
Park added a third after another ball from Pulman found Stimson. Her initial effort hit the keeper but rebounded back to her, allowing her to round the keeper and score.
Not long after, Isleham pulled one back after Park missed several opportunities to clear their lines and allowed the striker through to score.
Teagan Pulman was awarded the player of the match title after an excellent game in midfield, from where she had a hand in all three goals.
Park are back in action next weekend with a League Cup tie against Leverington.
