Moulton Ladies 2 Histon Ladies 5

SSE Women’s FA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round
Sunday 18th September 2016.


Histon Ladies progressed to the next round of the cup with this comfortable victory at Moulton.

Histon went 1-0 up on 14 minutes when Sophie Ugur’s determination on the left led to Kate Saunders taking a shot left of goal and on the edge of the area that went over the goalkeeper and into the far bottom corner of the net.

It was 2-0 in the 23rd minute, Abigail Davies keeping the ball under pressure and beating the ‘keeper at the near right post from close range. Sophie Hopkins netted twice near the end of the half, her first coming on 41 minutes with a waist high volley from a Davies cross and her second two minutes into added time with a nice left foot finish that clipped the near right post on the way in.

Moulton pulled one back to make it 4-1 through Emma Perry six minutes into a much more subdued second period before Ugur cleverly netted Histon’s fifth goal on 77 minutes when she beat the ‘keeper at her near left post with everyone else expecting a cross.

The hosts scored another on 80 minutes to complete the scoring.

In Monday’s draw for the 3rd Qualifying Round the ladies were drawn at home and will face Peterborough Northern Star at The Glassworld Stadium on Sunday 9th October, kick off @ 2.00pm.
