Pompey win Hampshire Senior Cup
 Women's Football News 18 Apr 2012
Portsmouth claimed the Hampshire FA Senior Cup for the eighth time in nine years with a 2-1 win over Havant & Waterlooville at Gosport on Tuesday. 
Pompey created a number of good chances in each half but could not finish off a battling Hawks team who were in contention right to the end of the match.

Hawks, who had knocked their opponents out of the Portsmouth DFA Cup earlier in the season, started brightly and had the first efforts on goal, but it was the Premier League club who opened the scoring when Shelly Cox struck the underside of the bar from fifteen yards and Leeta Rutherford was able to force home the rebound from close range. Lucy Quinn had a good chance to extend the lead and Cox had another left foot drive deflected just over but Portsmouth were held to single goal at the break.

Hawks started well again and this time they made it count. A free kick from the half way line was headed across goal for Vinny Nkomo to rise and loop a header wide of Sadie Blakely on 48 minutes. Shaken by this setback, Portsmouth piled on the pressure, going close through Charley Wilson, Rutherford and Gemma Hillier.

A hotly disputed goal proved to be the winner just before the hour. Quinn cut into the area from the right and hit a low shot towards goal. As the ball travelled across the goalmouth, Hillier, who Hawks felt was in an offside position, seemed to attempt to guide the ball past keeper Sally-Anne Thompson. The goal was credited to Quinn.

Hawks were lively at times on the break and Rachel Rigby did well to clear a dangerous effort with Blakely stranded but Pompey had the majority of play and chances in the closing stages. Thompson made a fine save to tip over a Rutherford shot and keep Hawks in the game as five minutes of added time ticked down., but it was Pompey skipper Hillier who lifted the trophy, as Portsmouth made it four in a row.
