On Sunday the ladies team traveled to Reading to play Woodley United Ladies Reserves in the second round of the cup. Previously the ladies had lost to Woodley 3-2 in the league. However, the ladies were confident that they had improved enough over the season to give them a tough game.
The match began and Wycombe started well with plenty of energy. Both teams had equal possession and in the first 10 minutes there were near misses at each end, with some great saves from Wycombe keeper Emily Sherwood. As the first half went on, Wycombe settled into the match and retained possession better. Wycombe had more good chances as the first half went on, but unfortunately were unable to convert them into a lead and the half finished 0-0.
The second half started with much the same as the first half had ended. Wycombe continued to press the ball and had some more good chances. Unfortunately, around 20 minutes in to the second half, Woodley managed to score, giving them a 1-0 lead. The team's heads did not drop and with this determination Jackie Hanson managed to run forward, tackle a Woodley defender, run through and score a great goal, equalizing the game after less than 2 minutes. After this, Wycombe stepped up their game and went all out for the win. Another goal from Jackie Hanson made it 2-1 and a goal from Ellie Searle made it 3-1 as the final score.
Wycombe Wanderers Ladies were ecstatic with the win, and hope their great form will continue for the rest of their cup run. They will now play Headington Ladies in the quarter-finals, the team that they previously beat 3-1 in the League Plate finals.
