Dons notch Cup upset
 Women's Football FA Women's Cup News - 7 Dec 2018
AFC Wimbledon 2 Portsmouth 0
AFC Wimbledon, of FAWNL Division One South East moved into the Third Round of the SSE Women's Cup with a 2-0 home win over higher division opponents Portsmouth.
An excellent all round display led to a deserved reversal of the result between the clubs at the same stage last season, with goals from Caz Bisson and Georgia Heasman, one in each half. Pompey applied strong pressure at times in the second half but were frustrated by strong Dons defending.
The hosts, playing with the strong breeze, dominated the opening exchanges, Hannah Billingham going close from distance and further efforts twice testing visiting keeper Jaime Rowlands.
It was skipper Bisson who opened the scoring just after the midway point of the half. After her hat-trick of free kicks against New London Lionesses in the last round, there was anticipation as she shaped up to take another after a foul on Heasman wide on the left. Sure enough, the delivery was once more inch perfect, curling beyond Rowlands and dropping in at the far post.
Heasman was close to adding a second from a Billingham free kick and only alert anticipation by Rowlands and a fine saving tackle from Eilidh Currie prevented Bisson from adding to the Dons lead before the break.
Portsmouth returned with renewed determination after the break and finally started to test the Dons rearguard with Alex Collighan prominent down the left and Esther Anu running through the middle.
After withstanding pressure, the Dons broke out with devastating effect on 57 minutes. Jenny Nagle released Bisson on the right and the skipper's low cross was controlled and finished crisply by Heasman from ten yards.
Pompey sub Daisy McLachlan provided further threat up front, nearly connecting with a corner within seconds of arrival and then forcing a fine save from Chanell Yardley with a close range header from an inviting Katie James cross on 73 minutes.
Yardley then did well to gather a dangerous low cross from Anu at full stretch but apart from those two moments, the Dons defence stayed solid right to the end with the visitors reduced to long range speculative efforts .
AFC Wimbledon saw out time comfortably to obtain a well earned win and thus progress to the Third Round draw, much to the delight of players, coaching staff and their loyal supporters.
AFC Wimbledon:
Chanell Yardley, Sian Wylie, Jordanne Hoesli-Atkins, Sarah Wentworth, Hannah Billingham, Kelly Highman, Hannah Baptiste, Rosie Russell, Jenny Nagle, Caroline Bisson, Georgia Heasman. Subs: Katie Stanley, Megan Kowalski, Justine Buckmire, Linsey Clarke, Madison Parsonson.
