Boroughbridge AFC Ladies 2-5 Wetherby Athletic Ladies Supplementary Cup

Wetherby Athletic Ladies travelled to play Boroughbridge Ladies in the first game of the Supplementary Cup.

Lucy Crann battles for the ball.

Withstanding some early Wetherby pressure, Boroughbridge took the lead when a quick break lead to their player firing past Katy Poulter.

The Tangerines equaliser came when Louise Ross produced a cheeky back heel to chip the ball into the Boroughbridge net.

Louise Ross scores the equaliser.

Soon after Captain Sarah Holmes put Wetherby in the lead with a bullet header that left the Boroughbridge keeper with no chance.

Sarah Holmes heads home Wetherby's second.

The visitor's took the game to the hosts, but some great defending by Boroughbridge stopped any further goals from being scored in the first half.

Jemma Carmody hooks the ball into the area.

The second half started with Wetherby getting their third goal when Lucy Crann squared the ball to Ross, who drilled it under the keeper for 3-1.

Crann and Ross combine for goal number three.

Boroughbridge refused to give up and soon after they scored their second to make it 3-2 and put the game back on a knife edge.

Combining again, Wetherby produced a flowing moved that was ended when Holmes picked her spot and calmly placed her shot into the goal.

Holmes scores his second of the game to kill it off.

With an injury to Boroughbridge's keeper forcing her off (we hope she get's better soon!) one of their outfield players had to go in goal. Despite pulling off some superb save, even she couldn't stop Crann from getting the fifth goal.

Lucy gets the goal that she deserved throughout the game.

The match finished 5-2 to Wetherby which gives us an opening three points in the league stages.

Next week, Wetherby play Ripon City Panthers at The Ings in the second cup match.

The two teams combine pre-match.
