13th November - Larkfield v Junior Red Robins
Its such a shame sometimes there can only be one winner in certain Cup matches and this was definitly one of those...
I was fortunate enough to be able to watch most of this cup tie and I saw 2 sides , currently 1st and 2nd in Division 2 , meet and play a match that was a credit to the KGLFL , the U13's and their two clubs.
An impeccably observed minutes silence , a worldie goal , great attacking play , defences who didn't give up , brave keepers , lovely attitudes from the girls , great supporters and 2 great management teams... and the sun shining... I picked a great match to watch!
With an equaliser from Junior Reds Robins snatched at the death to put the game into extra time , it still couldn't be decided , so onto the dreaded penalties , always a cruel way to end a match... but there can only be one winning team and it was Junior Reds Robins on this occasion , and I look forward to seeing who they meet on the 11th December in the quarter-finals and wish them well.
Larkfield now go into the Tina Marshall cup and I've no doubt will be a team to be reckoned with - good luck to them too. Sarah M'Grady - U13 Admin Officer
"It was a brilliant game of football between two great teams. Both teams had plenty of opportunity to win the game within the 70 minutes however some brilliant goalkeeping and defending denied them of that chance. Well done to both Goalkeepers in the penalty shootout." Yusef - Manager, Junior Red Robins
"Sundays cup fixture against Junior Reds Robins was an absolutely fantastic team display of football from both teams. Every player on that pitch played their heart out and were worthy winners in my eyes. Unfortunately only one team can go through and we would like to congratulate the Junior Reds girls. The Larkfield girls walked away with their heads held high too and that's all I can ever ask for." Jessica - Manager , Larkfield Ladies
