Chesham United won the Southern Region League Cup, to add to their league title, with a 3-1 victory over AFC Bournemouth in the Final at Alton.
Chesham got out of the blocks quickly and with eight minutes gone, Gemma Fraser gave them a 1-0 lead. The action ebbed and flowed for the next 20 minutes; Chesham keeper Lucia Masella was called into action a couple of times and on 33 minutes she got more of the player than the ball and AFC Bournemouth earned a penalty. Chloe Tape looked to have slotted in to the bottom right hand corner but it hit the foot of the post and bounced wide to safety to be cleared.
With pitchside temperatures probably in the region of 30 degrees, the second half got started again and Fraser again did the business in front of goal, her pace making life difficult for the Cherries defenders. She slotted home on 55 minutes to put Chesham 2-0 up. The Cherries rallied again but Fraser popped up to finish off her hat-trick and secure her player of the match award, as well as the match ball.
Despite the big mountain to climb, Division One South title winners AFCB kept playing and on 78 minutes, Tape made up for her missed penalty with a goal to keep hopes alive for the Cherries. Sadly there was to be no further goals for them and the game finished with Chesham Utd 3-1 to the good.
Oxford City meanwhile lifted the Chairman's Cup with a narrow 3-2 win against Winchester City Flyers. The game started as a cagey affair and suffered from a lack of fluidity as several knocks to players meant eight minutes of added on time and no goals before half time.
After a much needed half time break, the Hoops took the lead on 52 minutes through Mollie Dyer, and then three minutes later went 2-0 up with a goal from Lauren May. Flyers came back into the game through Hannah Chaffey and the next ten minutes looked like Oxford had ridden the storm. They weren't counting on a wonder volley though from Kayleigh Moss which Hannah Cox got fingertips to but couldn't keep out to make it 2-2.
On 83 minutes, Oxford City nosed in front again with Emily Green scoring and despite some last minute chances, they held on for a 3-2 win.
