U14s Lionesses reach League Cup Final
Congratulations to the U14 Lionesses for reaching the League Cup final for the second year running.The girls beat Bedford away 2-1 on Saturday to book a place in the final which will be held on 24 March against either Kempston or Stotfold.
Despite only having 11 fit players the Lionesses controlled the game for most of the match. The team took a 2-0 half-time thanks to two excellent finishes from Elizabeth who had recovered just in time to play having been ill all week.
Despite the hosts getting a goal back in the second half the Lionesses held onto their lead without any further alarms to confirm their place in the final.
Kempston are the odds on favourite to win the other semi-final which would set up a Cup Final showdown between the League’s two leading sides at the U14 age group.
Well done Girls!

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.

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.
