Nikita Parris' first half double proved vital as Everton edged past a spirited Notts County side to book a place in the FA Women's Cup Final with a 2-1 victory at Alfreton.
The Toffees were two goals ahead at half time thanks to Parris' brace and although Katie Hoyle pulled one back for County just after the break, it was Everton who held on to seal their place in the Final at stadium:mk on Sunday 1st June.
The twice Cup winners, who last lifted the trophy in 2010, were ahead after fourteen minutes when Parris slipped her marker and headed the ball past Carly Telford from a corner. They doubled their advantage just before the half hour when Parris netted her second, the striker capitalising on a fumble from Telford to lash home.
Telford then brilliantly denied Parris a first half hat-trick after she was clean through on goal, while Rachel Brown-Finnis at the other end was called into action to deny Amy Turner's long range effort.
Hoyle got County back into the game on 56 minutes when she prodded home from four yards, but the equaliser never came as first Jess Clarke hit the post and Dunia Susi skied over the bar to see Everton progress at the Impact Arena.
Notts County: Carly Telford, Sophie Walton, Sophie Bradley, Desiree Scott, Amy Turner, Rachel Corsie, Katie Hoyle, Katie Holtham (sub Emily Roberts 81mins), Dunia Susi, Caitlin Friend (sub Aileen Whelan 73mins), Jess Clarke. Subs not used: Jules Draycott, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk, Sophie Haywood.
