Ladies U13s into semis

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

AF­TER frus­trat­ing post­pone­ments due in­clement weather, Mac­cles­field Town Ladies FC U13s fi­nally had their mo­ment in the sun, against Uni­corn Emer­alds in quar­ter fi­nal of the Cheshire FA Mi­nor Cup.

From the kick off MTLFC had the stronger mid­field with Leh Hanaghan, Sara Dale and Lily Fal­lon ef­fec­tive down right hand side.

Uni­corn found them­selves pinned back. Lily Fal­lon had the bet­ter of the de­fence ,latch­ing onto a through ball and con­trol­ling it be­fore ri­fling the ball into the top cor­ner of the net.

Dids Par­ish as usual kept the op­pos­ing at­tack at bay with some brave tack­les and bound­less en­ergy.

Leaha Hanaghan curled a free kick from 25 yards over the head of the keeper to make it 2-0.

Uni­corn started the sec­ond half strongly, work­ing both wings well.

Olivia De­lany was out­stand­ing in mid­field, help­ing MTLFC to re­tain the ball and she was also un­lucky not to add to the score sheet with her shot hitting the post.

Other no­table per­for­mances came from Su­san­nah Brid­gett, per­sis­tently bit­ing at the Uni­cron at­tack.

Uni­corn didn’t give up, pil­ing on the pres­sure with cor­ner af­ter cor­ner which even­tu­ally paid off with a de­served goal.

MTLFC came out fight­ing, look­ing for an­other goal. Sara Dale’s long-range ef­fort struck the cross­bar and the match ended 2-1 in Mac­cles­field’s favour, with the place semi fi­nal next week. Dids Par­ish ended up on merit with ‘Girl of the Game’

The only other match to take place was MTLFC U18s who beat league lead­ers Wythen­shawe Youth 1-0 to re­tain fifth spot in the league.
