Woodley Utd 0 Moneyfields 9
Moneyfields marched into the semi finals of the Southern Region League Subsidiary Cup with a nine-goal victory over Woodley United.
Both clubs had qualified for this quarter final encounter from their respective group stage matches, but Moneys simply had too much power and experience for the spirited home team.
Woodley had the first effort on goal through May Hamblin and the opening fifteen minutes were fairly even. Moneyfields took the lead through Roxy-Lee Stewart with a good low finish.
Woodley defended strongly until just after the half hour when Kayleigh Tonks crossed for Kim Whitcombe to head home. A Tonks penalty extended the lead shortly after.
Hamblin nearly pulled a goal back with an excellent run beating two defenders before rattling the bar with a curling 20 yard effort but right on the break Tonks broke clear of the defence to score her second and Moneys' fourth.
Sheree Bell-Jack added a fifth soon after the restart and then Ciara Boylan scored the sixth on 56 minutes. Things looked bleak for the hosts when Bell-Jack tapped in just before the hour having previously struck the underside of the bar.
However, Woodley rallied well with Ellen Surtees going close with a well struck inswinging corner then Hamblin again breaking clear only to be denied by fine save from Lauren Sayler.
The rest of the match was Woodley goalkeeper Nicole Haines starring with a series of fine saves to frustrate all the Moneys' attackers, repeatedly beating away shots from Tonks and Bell-Jack and coming bravely off her line to collect numerous times.
It took two high quality efforts to defeat the Woodley keeper, a volley from skipper Sophie Kingsley-Cabell from a Carla Nicholson corner then a superb 20-yard strike from Kira Vallely after an initial shot had rebounded back to her on 82 minutes.
Moneyfields will face a repeat of their thrilling Vitality FA Cup match up with AFC Bournemouth CST in next week's Subsidiary Cup semi final with New Milton Town and Abingdon United making up the last four.
