Army triumph after close encounter

Army triumph after close encounter - 12 Mar 2011 - Women's Football NewsThe Army won the Inter Services Trophy at Aldershot Town FC by holding the RAF to a 0-0 draw on Thursday.
 
A 2-1 victory the previous week away to the Royal Navy had put the Army ladies in the position of having to avoid defeat to the reigning champions in order to win the competition. This was accomplished in a tense and highly competitive encounter where chances were at a premium.
 
The hosts nearly took the lead in the first minute when Bianca Ross was clean through but shot wide. The RAF team, playing with the strong breeze, soon settled and started to move the ball round effectively, penning the Army back in their own half. They came close to grabbing a vital lead, twice hitting the woodwork with efforts from right wing corners, the second being a fine save by Army keeper Roxy Roberts to fingertip the ball on to the bar.
 
The Army regained a measure of control just before the break and RAF keeper Cath Beaver made a fine save to deny Ross at point blank range.
 
With everything to play for, the second half was a more cagey affair. The Army dominated territorially but failed to break through the very solid RAF defence. Quick counter attacks threatened the Army defence and Roberts once had to sprint 30 yards from goal to foil one such break with a last ditch sliding tackle.
 
Play became increasingly physical with numerous free kicks as both teams sought the decisive goal to win the competition . The RAF finished the stronger and twice Roberts had the race from goal to block attacks, ending up needing treatment on both occasions from strong challenges.
 
The final whistle saw wild celebrations from the Army team and their coachload of supporters and skipper Krissy Wright was presented with the cup after a spirited display by all her team mates against strong opponents.
