Abbey Rangers Res 0 Edgware Town 1
Edgware Town will face Sport London E Benfica in the Capital Junior Cup Final after a hard fought semi final win away to Abbey Rangers Reserves.
A single goal by Monique Marshal midway through the first half was enough to take Edgware through but they had to endure long periods of Abbey pressure in the second half.
Marshal had already forced a fine save by Nat Jones in the Abbey goal before an excellent solo run and low shot on 25 minutes opened the scoring.
Abbey responded well and Carla Hobbs, who was outstanding throughout for the hosts, had a shot inches wide as did Isabella Sarmiento, but the visitors were always dangerous and took their lead into the break.
The introduction of Georgia Brenton gave Abbey a great threat own the right and the home team piled on the pressure. However Edgware, with Ivanka Koleva rock solid at the heart of the back four, never gave Abbey a clear sight of goal.
Edgware were also very good on the break with Marshal and Shaz Pascelle excellent at taking on the defence. Home keeper Jones made a series of good saves to keep Abbey in the match as the rain intensified.
Right at the end, Hobbs managed to break clear to score but the equaliser was ruled out for offside to allow Edgware to celebrate a very hard won place in the Capital Junior final on June 23rd.
