Penrith Ladies into League Plate Quarter Finals

Georgia Campbell

[P]enrith made the long journey to Liverpool for a tricky League Plate tie.

On a tight pitch Penrith played the 1st half with the wind at their backs and this proved beneficial when Penrith took the lead on 19 mins. Georgia Campbell’s cross was caught by the strong wind and drifted over the keeper and into the far corner.

Liverpool equalised when a well guided free kick squeezed under the cross bars giving Penrith keeper Michelle Jones no chance.

Liverpool then took the lead from the penalty spot just before half time after Jade Williams was adjudged to have brought down the Liverpool striker.

HT 2-1

Penrith started the 2nd half in determined fashion and turned the game around with 2 goals in a 5 minute spell. Firstly Nat Broad was first to react to a loose ball in the Liverpool area. Then Hannah Coulthard finished off a well worked corner.

Liverpool fought to get back into the game while Penrith looked threatening on the break. This eventually earned Penrith a 4th goal as Campbell got her 2nd goal of the afternoon.

FT 2-4

Penrith now await the Quater Final draw.

Penrith : Jones, Nelson, Williams, C.Smith(McCormick), Han Fawkes, Hea Fawkes, Nutter(Johnston), Coulthard, Broad, Hopton, Campbell.
