Newbottle Girls U-13s 4, Newton Aycliffe Girls U-13s 2
The under 13 girls travelled to Newbottle near Houghton-le-Spring on a bitterly cold night for their much anticipated cup final.
A great crowd from Aycliffe encouraged the girls in a very tight game, but it was Lumley who made the breakthrough and followed up with a second before the interval.
After a good half-time team talk and a few tactical changes, the girls got to grips with the game in the second half.
However a rare Lumley attack caught the girls on the break and they got a third goal.
The Aycliffe crowd needed something to cheer and Cora give them a much deserved goal.
However once again Lumley stepped up their game and got a fourth, but the girls never gave up and with a few minutes to go Aycliffe produced the goal of the game when Leona made a defence-splitting pass to Cora who hit a rasping drive that the keeper couldn’t hold and Lucy was at hand to prod the ball over the line.
Club secretary Berni Borsberry said: “The girls didn’t let anyone down on the night as they showed a great spirit and determination and were credit to the club.”
With only a few games left of this season, Aycliffe are looking to add to their squad in preparation for next season.
