Ladies Out Of County Cup

Sandhurst Prove Too Strong

Wantage entertained Sandhurst Town in the Berks & Bucks Women’s Junior Cup on a heavy pitch that hadn’t had a chance to recover from the previous days’ men’s game in the torrential rain.

But the visitors adapted far better than the home side, and were deserved 4-2 winners by the end.

Not that it went all their way as for a change Wantage were quickest out of the blocks and took a fourth minute lead when Meghann Steptoe’s corner found its way to Skye Cooper who volleyed home on the turn.

But the home side couldn’t press home the advantage as the visitors upped a gear and put Wantage on the back foot, utilising the grassier, drier, wide areas well. And in Shellie Irvine they have the league’s third top scorer who is quick, with good movement, and a good eye for goal.

After some mounting Sandhurst pressure, during which keeper Robyn Hill made some crucial saves, Irvine eventually pulled them level on 24 minutes when a free-kick was only partially cleared and she pounced to fire home from the edge of the area.

Wantage then got caught flat on 34 minutes when a through ball set Irvine away with Ally Paton in hot pursuit, but the latter was unable to stay on her feet at the crucial time and Irvine was able to roll the ball past Hill for 2-1.

And five minutes later Irvine completed her hat-trick, heading home from a corner, to give the visitors an unassailable half-time lead.

With Wantage playing down the slope in the second half they were able to create more chances than the first half, but without the final end product. They were eventually rewarded in the 59th minute when a cross to the far post found Georgina Ash who slotted home with the keeper stranded.

But Sandhurst put the game beyond all doubt in the 79th minute, Irvine capitalising on a poor goal kick to notch theirs, and hers, fourth goal of the game.
