Dominant Worthing win Sussex Trophy
 Women's Football Club News - 17 Mar 2017
Worthing Ladies lifted the Sussex Women's Challenge Trophy after a resounding 6-1 victory over Lancing Ladies.
The visitors were the stronger team throughout the contest and thoroughly deserved their triumph after creating an impressive thirty one attempts on goal.
In a period of early dominance, Gemma Worsfold signalled Worthing's intent by volleying an effort straight at Stacey Johnson in the Lancing goal. Worthing were not to be denied for long as Pippa Langridge opened the scoring in the 18th minute. Langridge got behind the Lancing defence and slotted past Johnson from inside the area.
Worthing should have extended their lead just two minutes later with Langridge involved again as she played in Ella Whitcomb whose low shot went just wide.
There was a halt in action as a number of Lancing players needed medical attention but this pause did nothing to stem Worthing's dominance and the away side made it 2-0 just after the half hour mark. From the left wing, captain Naomi Robinson collected the rebound from her corner and was allowed the space to power a wonderful effort past a helpless Johnson for her twelfth goal of the season.
Just two minutes later, the lead was three as Lancing's defence failed to clear from a Whitcomb cross and Langridge bundled a scrappy finish home for her second.
Hasty distribution from Johnson, coupled with Lancing's deep defensive line led to a stream of Worthing attacks as the away side repeatedly regained possession quickly, resulting in eighteen shots in the first half for the visitors. The best of those shots came from Whitcomb who had plenty of time on the edge of the area to unleash a brilliant effort that beat an outstretched Johnson to make it 4-0.
Lancing won their first corner as the half came to a close but almost went into the break even further behind as Langridge countered but sent her effort wide.
The change of ends did result in a brief change of momentum as Lancing were able to craft some good chances early in the second half with Billie-Jo Cobb heavily involved. Nicola Harrison found Cobb with a through ball and her first effort was blocked by an onrushing Angharad Hills. Cobb collected the rebound and played in Beck Reed who was unable to finish under pressure from a Worthing defender and sent her effort wide.
Langridge thought she had completed her hat-trick on the hour but she was ruled offside and would end the night on two goals as she was replaced by Emily Cook.
After riding the pressure from Lancing early in the half, Worthing pressed forward to add to their tally. In the 66th minute, Worsfold cut inside from the left wing and her effort forced a good save from Johnson. From the resulting corner Hannah Hewlett's header looped over the bar.
Lancing continued in their search for a first goal of the night as Cobb raced through on goal and struck a long range effort that forced Hills to tip over the bar. At the other end, Katie Burling chested down a cross before hitting a volley that had Johnson beaten but struck the underside of the crossbar.
In a match of few fouls Megan McCready was shown a 90th minute yellow card after she handled the ball in her own area. Kelly Humphrey stepped up to take the penalty and skilfully placed the spot kick into the top corner with substitute keeper Lani Smith unmoved.
Worthing would add two further goals in added time to seal their success. First, substitute Jodi Ward was on hand to smash home after Johnson failed to gather a cross. Then, Robinson delivered a free kick into the box that went untouched and found the net to secure a resounding 6-1 victory for Worthing.
