Rachel's hat-trick fires Cobham success
 Women's Football News 19 May 2014
Rachel's hat-trick fires Cobham success - 19 May 2014 - Women's Football NewsCobham Ladies lifted the Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy with a 3-1 win over Victoire Ladies in a battle between the top two teams in GLWFL Division Three South. 
The opening match in the Greater London Women's League Finals Day was a very good contest full of good football between teams new to the league, both having previously competed in the Surrey County Women's League. The finishing of Rachel Marlow, who notched a hat-trick, was the difference between two well matched teams on the day.
Victoire had the first chance on six minutes, Danielle Leacock shooting just wide, but Cobham went very close twice in a matter of seconds as first keeper Emma Spencer then a clearance off the line denied them. Marlow gave Cobham the lead on 18 minutes, helping in a cross after good work on the right by Becky Tansey.
Misty Townsend was very near to an leveller from a Reanne Jones cross but it was Cobham who doubled their advantage on 34 minutes with a breakaway goal. Marlow looked to be offside when she received the ball but calmly advanced to beat Spencer.
Emily O'Neil, who worked tirelessly up and down the left for Victoire, was inches away from reducing the arrears on the half time whistle when meeting a right wing cross with a header on the run but the score remained 2-0 at the break.
Victoire got the lifeline they needed on the hour. Townsend had gone very close with a powerful run and shot just over the bar but in the next attack a Cobham defender was adjudged to have fouled Jones and Bradie Haynes converted the penalty past Louise Yu.
Cobham soon restored their two-goal cushion when Marlow was again clear on goal. Despite a saving tackle from O'Neil, the ball rebounded kindly for the Cobham forward to run the ball home for her hat-trick on 64 minutes.
Steph Mann hit the post for Cobham and the ball ran along the line before Rosie Garnett cleared the ball but Victoire battled to the end, Danielle Leacock again nearly scoring with a shot inches over the bar.
Cobham, who have gone unbeaten in winning the League, completed an excellent season by lifting the impressive Sue Sharples Memorial Trophy.
