The New Saints Ladies under 16′s booked their place in the Central Warwickshire Girls League Cup Final after a hard fought win at home to Boldmere Falcons.
The Saints started brightly but Boldmere pushed the Saints and made it hard for them to get off the mark. After a few chances, Francesca Scott fired the Saints into a lead, volleying home from a Maddie Jones corner.
The Saints were pegged back just after half time, with the visitors being awarded a penalty. The Falcons player stepped up and slotted past Ceri Evans in the Saints goal.
The Saints pushed hard but were met by a resilient Boldmere Falcons team but just twelve minutes from time Francesca Scott scored the winner. Scott chased down the Falcons defenders in their own box to win the ball and slotted home, booking a place in the final.
After the game manager Steve Scott commented, “This was one of our toughest games of the season, we were made to work hard by a strong Boldmere side. Everyone involved is excited for the final now.”
The New Saints Ladies will face Coventry City Ladies in the league cup final after they beat Derby County Ladies 4-3 in the other semi final.
