Lionesses U13s reach Cup Final after penalty shootout drama
The Lionesses squeezed past their semi-final opponents Dunstable after a nail – biting penalty shootout to win a place in the U13s League Cup final.
With the scores level 1-1 at full-time the game went into a tense 20 minutes of extra-time. Despite relentless pressure from the Lionesses there was no further score and the game had to be decided by a penalty shootout. Goalkeeper Maddy saved two penalties whilst Maisie, Elizabeth, Nia and finally, Sacha, held their nerve to score and book a place in next week’s final against Kempston.

U13s march into the League Cup semi-finals
A hard fought 0-0 draw away to Shefford on Saturday was enough for the Lionesses to top their group in the League Cup and qualify for next week’s knock-out semi-finals stage.
Having beaten runaway League champions Kempston in early February, the Lionesses only needed a draw to secure qualification for the semi-finals. This was achieved with a committed and disciplined performance from the girls who stuck their game plan brilliantly.
The team’s semi-final opponents should be known on Monday or Tuesday.
