Junior Girls reach second Cup Final
Alford U15 Girls travelled to Garioch Sports Centre to play Inverurie Girls in the Semi – final of the Aberdeenshire Cup.
Have beaten Inverurie convincingly in the league the girls felt confident.
At the start of the game it was clear that Inverurie had fielded a stronger team than in the league match and took the lead
in the 5 minute after a defensive mistake by Alford. The Alford team bounced back with a goal from Becky, then Demi hit the post before
scoring Alford’s second.
This spurred Inverurie on by hitting their second then they got a third through another Alford defensive mistake and own goal.
Just before half time Demi equalised to make it 3 v 3 at half time.
Alford started strong in the second half but their passing wasn’t getting to their players. Inverurie hit back with 2 quick goals (5 v 3).
Alford kept on attacking but many of their shots were off target. Holly got Alford’s 4th with a great individual run.
The game was still alive with 8 minutes to play.
Becky broke through Inverurie’s defence to get another equaliser (5 v 5) with 4 minutes remaining.
Alford took back control and Darcie hit the post.
With 3 minutes remaining Darcie scored what was to be the winner.
The last 2 minutes Inverurie were on the attack. Eventually Alford got the ball and were able to hold on until the final whistle.
A great performance from all the girls especially to come back from being 5 v 3 down.
Scorers were Becky 2, Demi 2, Darcie 1 and Holly 1.
