Herne Bay lift Kent Plate
 Women's Football News 6 Apr 2013
Herne Bay completed the first part of a potential treble in their first ever season by winning the Kent FA Women's Plate Final at Sevenoaks on Wednesday. 
The South East Counties Regional League (Kent Division) side defeated Parkwood Rangers 4-1 in a highly entertaining match. Locked in a battle for the league title with Long Lane Reserves, Bay also will contest the Divisional Cup Final against Ridgewaye.
In front of a large crowd who braved the bitter wind and flurries of snow, it was Herne Bay who started the brighter but Parkwood took the lead with their first real chance, Emily Vaughan forcing her way through to slide the ball past Emily Johnson on 25 minutes.
Bay roared back with two goals in as many minutes around the half hour. Kiya Mills fed Vicky Holness who rounded Parkwood keeper Kelly Amer for the equaliser. Holness, who had an outstanding match, was tripped in the area a minute later and Lesley Kay converted the spot kick.
Holness shot inches over in the next attack and Herne Bay went further ahead on 39 minutes with a stunning 25-yard finish from Mills after Holness had cleverly held the ball up on the edge of the area. Parkwood reacted well and went very close twice before the break, hitting the bar from distance and Yaughan shooting over when well placed.
Parkwood needed a bright start to the second half but were pressed back and grateful to keeper Amer for an excellent second half display. A brave block at Mills' feet was followed by a fine stop when Holness latched on to a back pass. Late on Amer made another good save from a powerful close range effort after a corner but was powerless to stop Mills adding a fourth from a breakaway on 80 minutes.
Parkwood exerted a lot of pressure for much of the second half, getting their passing game going to test the Herne Bay defence and forcing numerous corners. Clear cut chances were kept to a minimum by sound defence but keeper Johnson made a fine save from a powerful Alana Garrett shot.
Parkwood, whose own FA Cup and League exploits have been notable this season, were given excellent support by a large group of family and friends but had to give best to a Herne Bay team which played extremely well. It was easy to see how Bay have scored 138 goals in the league this season and 50 in the last four matches alone but just as impressive was their excellent work rate which contained every effort a spirited Parkwood team made to get back into the match.
Herne Bay: Emily Johnson, Amy Warner, Charlie Hayes, Chantelle Bleau, Enya Lynch, Shona Clark, Kiya Mills, Lesley Kay, Lauren Wiltshire, Vicky Holness, Rachel Tracy. Subs: Jo Franks, Isabella Tulett, Natalie Lewis.
