Leeds knock out holders
 Women's Football News 8 Apr 2013
Leeds knock out holders - 8 Apr 2013 - Women's Football NewsLeeds Utd have reached the Premier League Cup Final for the fourth time in six years following a 4-1 victory over Sunderland in the semi finals, avenging last year's Final defeat to the Wearsiders. 
After a cautious opening twenty minutes, Leeds broke the deadlock when Rachel Lee played the ball through to Tanya Rich who hit a powerful angled shot past Rachael Laws to put her side in front. Before Sunderland could recover, they found themselves two behind, Danielle Sheen finding the net via a superb 25-yard strike which found the top corner.
Sunderland were missing leading goalscorer Beth Mead who was away on international duty with England Under-19s, but they got themselves back into the game on 32 minutes when Leeds were unable to clear a corner and Jordan Atkinson reacted quickly to score from close range.
After the break, Sunderland pressed hard for an equaliser but lost another key player when Sophie Williams went off with an injury sustained when Leeds goalkeeper Jules Draycott made a brave save as she chased a Sarah McFadden through ball.
Leeds defended strongly under pressure and also looked dangerous on the counter attack with Sheen going close and, despite Sunderland nearly levelling through McFadden and Joice, Leeds held firm and took a firm grip on the game when Abbie Lee increased their lead with two minutes remaining.
Emma Lipman rounded off the win in injury time by heading in from a corner and Leeds will now play the winners of the other semi final between Aston Villa and Portsmouth, which will be played next Sunday.
