Hampshire have reached the semi finals of the ESFA Under-16 County Competition following a 2-1 victory over Essex at Chigwell School.
The game kicked off on a very wet pitch, in cold and windy conditions. With most of the girls having not played for several weeks due to the weather, the opening twenty minutes were played at a frenetic pace with players struggling to control the ball in the conditions.
The game settled down with play switching from end to end but few real chances created. As the first half was coming to a close, Ellie Broomfield slipped the ball through to Millie Farrow who then went round the defender, drew the keeper before slotting the ball home to send Hampshire in at half time a goal ahead.
In the second minute of the second half, Laura Ingram's attempt at goal found Zoe Saunders who gave the keeper little chance to double the visitors lead. In the second half, the wind dropped and both sides played some very good football, considering the conditions and play continued to switch from end to end, with Essex coming more in to the game. Keeper Jess Myers was forced to make one excellent save but Essex did manage to pull one back with about 15 minutes to go.
The Hampshire defence had to work hard, with Rowan Tregas outstanding, to hold on to their lead and now wait to see who they meet in the semi-finals. Kent are due to play the winners of Surrey v Somerset for the right to meet Hampshire.
Hampshire squad: Ellie Bloomfield, Lucy Caunt, Molly Dineen, Hannah Dorman, Millie Farrow, Keeley Fitzgerald, Meagan Fox, Laura Ingram, Nicole Keen, Lauren Midhurst, Jessica Myers, Laura Rafferty, Zoe Saunders, Shannon Sievewright, Rowen Tragas, Tamara Webb.
