Fleetlands overcame Widbrook United 3-2 in the Hampshire Intermediate Cup Final at Hampshire FA headquarters in a closely contested game.
Fleetlands, playing with the wind and the slight slope in their favour, opened the scoring after just eight minutes when a corner was headed powerfully downwards through a crowd of players by Lucy Keil. There were few clear cut chances but some good approach play by both sides in the following half an hour, before two quick goals seemed to have settled the final in Fleetlands favour.
Firstly on 37 minutes a rapid run down the left and a whipped-in low cross by Natalie Bavister was stabbed in by Rebecca Waller at the near post, and then just four minutes later captain Sophie Davis ran through on goal to finish with aplomb.
The second half was barely five minutes old when Widbrook pulled a goal back, with Jade Kidd tucking the ball away at the far post.
This sparked renewed effort from Widbrook, who took the game to Fleetlands, and just after the hour mark got their reward when Sharna White ran onto a through ball and finished neatly to leave just a one goal deficit.
Chances came and went at both ends, with Julia Britt heading over from a corner for Fleetlands, but neither side found the net again despite both keepers being tested and numerous crosses and corners flying into the goalmouths. In the end Fleetlands were grateful for the final whistle which confirmed their victory.
