Wales on spot to beat England
 Women's Football News 24 Oct 2012
Wales Under-19 defeated their England counterparts on a penalty shootout in their friendly international meeting at St George's Park. 
After a gutsy and disciplined display against an experienced Swedish squad, Wales went into their second friendly of the week, determined to get the result their previous performance deserved.
Wales got off to a dream start, Ellie Curson scoring with just six minutes played. They continued to create chances with Hannah Keryakoplis and Catherine Walsh unlucky not to double the lead.
The pace set in the early stages continued throughout the half, with both teams carving out plenty of goal scoring opportunities. The home team's efforts payed off in the final minute of the first half, England equalizing to make it one all at half time.
The second period continued where the first had left off, fast paced attacking football at both ends, Hannah Keryakoplis again coming close.
Fresh legs were introduced to maintain Wales pressure Mali Summers on for Hannah Bluck, Stacey Webber on for Emma Beynon and Georgia Evans for Rachel Hignett. A second goal wouldn't come and the scoreline remained 1-1 at the final whistle.
However, the excitement wasn't over as both teams had to settle for the drama and tension of a penalty shoot out. Curson, Keryakoplis, James, Georgia Evans and Price all converted their spot kicks and Wales keeper Alice Evans emerged as hero of the day making a fine penalty save to secure the victory the Welsh girls had fought so hard for.
An excellent win and a great boost for the team as Wales prepare to host the UEFA European Under-19 Women's Championship FInals next summer.
