Newhaven 0 AFC Bournemouth CST 8
AFC Bournemouth CST of the Southern Region League Premier Division ended Newhaven's SSE Women's FA Cup adventure at the Third Qualifying Round stage with an excellent display, notching four goals in each half to claim a place in the First Round proper.
Whilst the result was disappointing for the hosts, a large and supportive Fort Road crowd showed their appreciation for both teams at the end, acknowledging in particular Newhaven's progress through three rounds to this stage.
The Cherries were in command throughout, producing slick passing movements and exploiting their speedy and skilled attackers to create a host of chances . The home team stuck to their task very well despite the heavy score, never giving up in the face of pressure and had their best spells of attack in the final quarter of the game, going close to a late consolation.
Bournemouth's Maisy Smith scored the first two goals on ten and thirteen minutes, the second set up after a run and cross from Rosie Eden, who had an outstanding match. Very good goalkeeping by Annie Hills denied Katie Kingshott and Georgia Ungoed made a fine block to deny Eden in front of goal. Sian Tilly then went close with a spectacular overhead volley from a corner as Bournemouth dominated the opening twenty minutes.
The hard working Dockers attacker Chloe Winchester got free on the right to test Bournemouth keeper Kate Guthrie on 26 minutes as the match evened up. However, the chances continued to come for the visitors, Hills saving twice from Terri Harvey and denying Smith a first half hat-trick.
Two further goals just before the break doubled the advantage. Eden added the third and Hills was unlucky when, after a fine save on the edge of the area , Harvey lobbed home the rebound from distance for an impressive fourth.
Little changed after the break with Eden denied again by Hills and Charlotte Eastman going close with a header from a corner . The Newhaven keeper was again unlucky after making a diving save from Smith, Harvey was on hand to net the rebound on the hour.
The sixth soon followed and it was the pick of the Bournemouth goals. The home team had forced a corner and maintained the pressure until the visitors passed their way out of defence, releasing wing back Emma Davis for a perfect cross volleyed home on the far post by Eden for her second. The seventh, on 68 minutes, came from Hannah Bennett and sub Jade Hockey fired home the eighth on 72 minutes.
Newhaven refused to buckle despite the setbacks and rallied impressively in the closing stages, penning the visitors back and moving the ball impressively in the Bournemouth half. Sub Paige Fowler did really well to reach the goal line and dig out an inviting cross for Ungoed who headed just wide in added time.
The tie was a well organised and supported event with a joint programme for the men's and women's team matches over the weekend and numerous junior Dockers in their distinctive red kit supporting the senior side. The South East Counties League hosts had met their match but exited this years SSE Women's FA Cup with pride.
