Radcliffe ran riot at Linby and cruised into the next round of the plate. The girls put in a commanding performance from the kick off with Edie converting Ellena’s pass for the opening goal. Kate almost made it 2-0 - but her penalty was brilliantly saved. All over the pitch players were impressing. Mia was tireless in midfield with Amber, Grace and Emily both strong at the back and creative going forward. Edie’s lovely drag back and shot deserved more when it hit the post and Mia had a shot pushed wide. But Katie extended the lead with a powerful run and shot for her first goal of the season.
The second half brought an avalanche of goals - with promising signs after Mia, Ellena and Emily combined to see a shot just go wide. The introduction of Freya brought an instant goal with a typical run and smart finish. Izzy was joining in the attacks and she got the final touch on the 4th. Freya then set up Erin for a very well taken 5th before some beautiful passing throughout the team concluded with another Edie goal for 6-0. Erin completed her hat trick with two well taken finishes - and Edie joined her by scoring the 9th. Emma - out of goal - came close to scoring too. Whilst Immie produced some typically strong runs from the back whilst sometimes holding the defence by herself. Another great finish from Flo put the score in double figures before Linby got a deserved goal back for their undeterred spirit. Ellena, now in goal, made a fine save - and topped off a player of the match performance. A final own goal saw the match over with Radcliffe emphatic winners.
