DUDLEY UNITED 1 v 3 WYRLEY PUMAS
A full strength Dudley started well and were determined to make this a difficult game for the Pumas, Dudley breached the Pumas defence in the first few minutes and a speculative strike from 20 yards out found the corner of the Pumas net, a shocked Pumas team took a little while to respond, but credit to them, respond they did as Lucy Wells went close when her shot struck the angle of the post and crossbar. Pumas pressed hard and put Dudley under pressure, a poor clearance fell to Danni-Jay Dodd Biggs whose left foot shot was too good for the Dudley keeper, which levelled the scores at half-time. The second half began as intensely as the first, but Pumas competed admirably, Jordan Parker, Abby Judson, Lauren Quinn and Ellie Whitehouse keeping it tight at the back. The Last Time I Saw Paris rip Pumas worked hard and went close through Abi Hall and Wells again, but after a series of corners, Jaffa hit a perfect cross straight to Danni who tapped in Pumas second. Pumas were now working the stubborn Dudley defence hard, a Wells free-kick striking the crossbar, before Abi Hall ran clear to slot the ball in off the near post to score Pumas third. Hannah Lote replaced Ellie for the last 15 minutes and played well for this spell to help Pumas win this cup tie.
