Ellistown's late Gamble brings profit!
 Women's Football News 10 May 2013
 
Ellistown left it until the 119th minute to win the Leicestershire Plate Final at Holmes Park in a game they dominated throughout the two hours of play, beating Loughborough Students 2-1. 
 
Town made their attacking intentions clear with a succession of eight corners in the first half but with the Students getting all eleven players in the box Town could not get that crucial touch to force the goal they deserved with twin strikers Jody Scott and Fran Gamble also proving a handful up front.
 
Somewhat against the run of play the Student number nine struck a speculative lob shot from 25 yards which cannoned back off the bar, struck keeper, Becky Robinson, and rolled over the line for a bizarre own goal.
The second half was again dominated by Town with a wave of attacks as the defensive central partnership of Rachel Lee and Kathryn Hollier mopped everything up at the back and kept the ball going forward. Lee was awarded the Carnetix Player of the Match Award for her outstanding performance. Scott got the goal she deserved on the hour mark as a fine through ball by Gamble was latched onto, beating the defence and cleverly sweeping it home past the on-rushing keeper.
 
Despite another 8 corners and crucial saves by the Students' keeper who was almost single handedly keeping the game alive and forcing it into extra time.
 
The second period of extra time saw the ball break kindly to substitute Holly Bryans but she rushed her first time shot and a golden chance evaporated as the Students continued to force the tie towards the dreaded penalty shootout. In the 119th minute a superb diagonally through ball by winger, Kristie Pearman, was followed up by Gamble who let the ball bounce once before gently lobbing the ball over the advancing keeper for a deserved winner.
