Downend Flyers kept their hopes of a League and Cup 'double' on course as they won 2-0 at Morley Rangers to reach the semi finals of the Bristol Soccerworld Cup.

The game remained in the balance until five minutes from time, with Morley committed to pushing players forward in search of an equaliser, Downend counter attacked and sealed the victory when Laura Baker slotted home the second and decisive goal.
