Gloucestershire FA Womens Trophy Semi-Final

Postby stroud green » Tue Mar 15, 2016 11:13 am

A hard fought Women’s Trophy semi final was eventually won by the visitors, but not before St Nicks had twice taken the lead, and proved a tough nut to crack

Played on a 3G pitch, the pace was fast, resulting in some well worked moves from both teams, only lacking a finishing touch to open the scoring. Half time arrived with the score line blank, although Rovers had begun to dominate leading up to the break.

The second half started with a bang as St Nicks took the lead when Forest Green failed to clear their lines, and a simple tap in at the far post put St Nicks ahead. It only took Rovers 10 minutes to equalize from a long range strike by Paige Stewart, only for the home team to re-take the lead from a goalmouth scramble straight afterwards.

This finally seemed to kick start the visitors into gear, and they scored a further three goals in the next 20 minutes from Kirsty Richardson, a second for Stewart, and captain Amy Baker weighing in with the last. Remarkably, all four of the visitor’s goals came from outside the box.

This win takes Rovers ladies through to the final against Cheltenham Town Ladies, to be played on Tuesday 12th April at the GFA headquarters at Oaklands Park, Almondsbury, with a 7.30pm kick off.

Pity the next round of the Gloucestershire Senior Cup against Bristol Rovers is on the same night I believe.
