Extra time heartbreak for Blues
 Women's Football News 4 Oct 2012
ASD CF Verona 3 (Girelli pen 37,79,112) Birmingham City 0
after extra time; Verona won 3-2 on aggregate

Birmingham City's European dreams were shattered as they went down to an extra time defeat at the hands of Verona. 
Dave Parker's side had taken a two-goal lead into the second leg and things appeared to be going well until the 37th minute when Emily Westwood was penalised for a foul on Cristiana Girelli in the area and the striker picked herself up to slot home the resulting penalty.
In the second half, Birmingham pressed hard for an away goal but despite dominating much of the play, it would not come. Jo Potter and Westwood both hit the woodwork whilst Rachel Williams went close on a number of occasions. With eleven minutes remaining, Girelli scored against the run of play to send the match into extra time.
There were chances for both teams during extra time but with eight minutes left, Girelli delighted a large home crowd by scoring direct from a free kick to put her side ahead in the tie for the first time. Birmingham were unable to conjure up a reply in the time left and will be left wondering what might have been after several near misses in both legs. 
ASD CF Verona: Stephanie Ormstrom, Dayane, Marta Carissimi, Marina Aggio, Maria Karlsson, Federica Di Criscio, Silvia Toselli (sub Valentina Maceri 115mins), Melania Gabbiadini (sub Claudia Squizzalo 28mins), Tatiana Zorri, Cristiana Girelli, Carolina Pini (sub Marta Mason 61mins). Subs not used: Sabrina Tasselli, Elena Maffezzoni, Martina Battocchio, Martina Gelmetti.

Birmingham City: Marie Hourihan, Chelsea Weston, Kerys Harrop, Jade Moore, Emily Westwood, Laura Bassett, Issy Christiansen (sub Rachel Unitt 90mins), Rachel Williams (sub Maz Ballard 119mins), Jodie Taylor, Karen Carney, Jo Potter. Subs not used: Rebecca Spencer, Emily Simpkins, Cristina Torkildsen.
