FA Women's Cup News - Ipswich power into Round Three - 7 Dec 2019 - Women's Football NewsChichester City 0 Ipswich Town 6
Ipswich Town gave a fine performance to beat Chichester City 6-0 and claim a place in the Third Round of the Women's FA Cup.
The FAWNL Division One South-East leaders took a four-goal lead into the break against the FAWNL Southern Division's bottom placed club and, despite a spirited display from the young Chi team, added two further strikes in the second half.
Keen to impress in their new home at Selsey FC, Chichester started well and had the first effort at goal when Gemma Simmonds crossed for Megan Fox to fire over the bar. However, Ipswich were soon ahead when a right side corner was powerfully headed home by Lindsey Cooper. The host team's Sharna Capel-Watson made a good run down the right and fired a shot into the side netting of Nikita Runnacles' goal as Chi responded to the early setback.
A huge scramble in the Chichester penalty area on 28 minutes led to the Ipswich second. Chi appeared to have cleared the danger on at least two occasions but eventually Abbie Lafayette was adjudged to have been pushed and Paige Peake lashed in the resulting spot kick.
Home keeper Issy Foster kept her team in touch with a superb save from a Natasha Thomas point blank header whilst at the other end, Lucy Cook was denied by Runnacles on 37 minutes.
Thomas was not to be denied, however, netting the third with an excellent lobbed finish from distance after Chi lost the ball in their own half.
A superb run across the area by Anna Grey set up Amanda Crump to finish high into the net for the Tractor Girls' fourth just before the break to cap a clinical first half display.
The home side again started well with sub Priscilla Martins having a shot from a Fox corner held by Runnacles. Sophie Peskett had a fine match for the visitors in attack and she added the fifth with a good run and low finish beyond Foster on 54 minutes.
Chichester battled hard to prevent further damage, Foster making another good save from Crump whilst centre backs Sophie Phelps and LouLou Robson showed determination against the speedy and inventive Ipswich attacks.
In added time, the visitors scored a sixth when Thomas burst clear, rounded Foster and netting from a tight angle but the tie had been decided long before then. It was a disappointing debut for Chichester in front of a good crowd at their impressive new base but Ipswich had given a fine display to claim a Third Round place.
