York regain trophy on shootout
 Women's Football News 29 Apr 2014
There was joy for York City but disappointment for Middlesbrough as they failed to hold onto the North Riding County Cup in Stokesley on Sunday afternoon. 
In a repeat of last year's final that saw 'Boro win 3-0, York eventually emerged as winners as the game went straight to penalty kicks following 90 minutes being played.

'Boro were assisted on the pitch by fantastic support that had travelled for the game and they were definitely the loudest throughout the game. The crowd of just under 200 were also greeted by MFC's Roary, Bee Active and the FA Women's Super League mascot Berry the Bear also made a very special guest appearance as they had pictures taken with fans and the teams before the game.

The first half saw York start the game strongest with a definite aim to try and take the lead early on and were easily making the most of the opening chances. 'Boro hit the bar around the fifteen minute mark and it was probably the only main chance of the half. York had several corner attempts but were unable to convert so the half finished goalless.

The second half saw a forceful York attempt within the first two minutes which was saved with ease from Becky Lillystone but on 56 minutes, Sara Renfew picked up a pinpoint cross from Nicki Brown and give her side the lead.

Hesitation in York's box just ten minutes later saw Nicky Duckling add to her goal tally this season, levelling things up for MFC, giving the side a boost in difficult conditions.

A 72nd minute substitution for York saw Lisa Bjornstaad join play and the response was immediate as she found Lauren Shuttleworth, who was able to score following a one-on-one against 'Boro keeper Lillystone.

However York couldn't hold on to lead this for long as Duckling found herself taken down in the area, leading to a penalty. Emily Scott, who has also had a fantastic season, managed to convert bringing 'Boro back level.

The game continued end to end with both teams looking for a last minute winner - however this didn't happen and on the full time whistle it was a draw.

The game went straight to penalties with both teams scoring their first two. MFC Ladies missed their third and a further miss from York meant sudden death penalties.

Despite best efforts from 'Boro, York keeper Chloe Precious made a save and Ashlee Black secured the victory for York with her strike as York were named North Riding FA Women's Champions for 2014 and reclaimed the trophy.
