County Cup final dreams after as absences take toll
DREAMS of a County Cup final were shattered for an under-strength Denham United U15 Girls side on Sunday.
A Denham side hit by injury, sickness and unavailability were beaten 3-0 by Tottenham Hotspur U16s in their semi-final after conceding two first-half freak own goals.
They shuffled the pack at the break and improved in the second half, but in pushing forward they were caught out at the back and conceded the decisive third goal against the run of play. The girls gave their all, but the 12 months difference in age, player for player, is where Spurs shaded it. Gina Lee was voted Denham’s player of the match.
Earlier in the week, the U15s hosted Norwegian team Droebak Frogn in an international friendly, with the game being played in a great spirit and Denham running out 6-0 winners.
Elsewhere, goals from Elishia Allen and Sarah Harrison saw the senior reserve team win 2-0 at Wealdstone, but the first team lost 3-0 at Luton and the U13s went down 4-0 to Bishops Stortford in the League Cup.
