ISFA U18 GIRLS CUP - LATEST NEWS

PRELIMINARY AND FIRST ROUND HIGHLIGHTS

PRELIMINARY ROUND

The first half was very competitive with early pressure from Sevenoaks as they forced two early corners. ACS Cobham slowly wrestled back and midway through the half Tucci latched onto a through ball to tuck the ball home. Sevenoakes went close to equalising before a right wing move involving several passes saw Georgia Smith hit the second for Cobham with a left foot drive off the post. Cobham started the second half with real purpose and killed off the game with early goals from Smith and Kamal.  Sevenoaks never gave up and although Cobham added further goals from Smith, Tucci and Sydney Conway they finished the match by forcing further corners and narrowly missing with two thunderous shots past the woodwork.

FINAL 2016-17: KING'S COLLEGE, TAUNTON RETAIN CUP TITLE

The 2017 U18 Girls Cup Final was, again, held at Thame United FC and saw current holders King’s College, Taunton face ACS Cobham. King’s made a swift start with their striker, Waddon, latching on to a through ball to calmly slot home. Waddon quickly doubled their lead before Karolayne Alencar and Hill both slotted home to put King’s 4-0 ahead at half time. ACS Cobham started the second half stronger retaining possession, however, King’s were quick to win the ball back and capitalise with Hole, Barzotelli, Kayane Alencar, Beale and Hill all adding to the score sheet. ACS Cobham prevented King’s keeping a clean sheet scoring a last-minute consolation goal through Saskia Veldhuizen. Cobham battled hard throughout the fixture but they had limited attacking opportunities and the pace and passing of the King’s team proved to be too good.
