Cup Final Woes for Hayfield Girls

Hayfield Girls U12 0 - 2 Hilton Girls U12

Hayfield lost the Derbyshire Girls and Ladies Under 12’s cup final being beaten 2-0 by a well organised Hilton Girls team.

Playing on a larger pitch at Matlock Town, Hayfield were never allowed to settle into their normal game and can look back at a series of missed chances which on another day would have been taken. In the first half Masie Goddard made several excellent saves, including a goal-line scramble to keep the scores even.

The second half started with Hilton hitting the post before their captain scored from a low drilled in corner. Hayfield pushed forward with an Alice Rayson header being deflected past the keeper and just failing to get a shot in from a corner with the goal begging. Hilton’s decisive goal came when another corner was only half cleared and the winger turned with a shot that went in off the far post.

Hayfield pressed until the final whistle with shots from Annabelle Wilde and Lily Conway but could not find a way past the keeper. Despite the defeat, manager Paul Vandermotten can be proud of the clubs first season and the contributions made from all the players: Georgia Bull, Lily Conway, Maisie Goddard, Telesha Griffiths, Maya Lancaster, Charlotte Peacock, Megan Pritchard, Alice Rayson, Sophie Rayson, Amy Vandermotten, Lydia Waterhouse and Annabelle Wilde.
