County Cup fi­nal dreams af­ter as ab­sences take toll

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.
