Northern Star shine in Cup
 Women's Football News 31 Jan 2013
Peterborough Northern Star advanced to the semi finals of the Northants County Cup with a 5-4 victory over Kettering Town. 
On the 3g pitch at Hinchingbrooke College, Kettering took the lead after ten minutes breakaway goal saw Kettering take the lead after just 10 minutes but balance was restored when Hannah Phillimore equalised after 25 mins and then with half time approaching, Jodie Bartle made a run from her own half to finish on a move with an excellent shot across the keeper in the far corner of the net.
The second half saw Northern Star continually pressing the Kettering goal and a mixture of good goalkeeping and wayward shooting prevented the home team from increasing their lead until Louise Burgess put the team 3-1 up on the hour. Jodie Bartle added a fourth ten minute later but a defensive lapse allowed Kettering to make the score 4-2. Ten minutes later Louise Burgess added the 5th with the goal of the game - a shot with the outside of her right foot from 25 yards out. It should have made the game safe but Northern Star switched off and allowed the visitors chance of comeback by conceding two late goals and they could have took it to extra time after a shot cannoned back off the post and with an open goal to aim for, the opposition couldn't react quickly enough.
It was the home team that were more relived to hear the final whistle and boss Steve Iredale commented: "At this rate my hair will be even greyer by the end of the season! We really should have made the game safe at 5-2 but we still wanted to score more goals - after 70 mins we were playing a 2-4-4 formation. I think my full backs thought they were Dani Alves and Jordi Alba at times - one of my full backs was on a hat trick and seemed to be living in their penalty area! However in a cup game, as long as you score one goal more than the opposition, then it is good enough.
The season is setting up nicely for the city team - they are through to two semi finals and still capable of making a strong challenge for the East Midlands League title. "We'll be playing every Sunday now through to the end of April and as long as the players keep focused then it could be a great season," added Iredale. "But we have to want to win these titles - the team is really still a young team in terms of age and we need to learn to see games out. At 5-2 we could have played possession football for ten minutes and learnt from it but we decided to go gung-ho and nearly paid the price."
