 Shots Off

110′ FULL TIME! The Olympia Warriors have won the 2019 Summer Cup in the final minute of extra time!

110′ GOAL to the Warriors! After multiples shots, unbelievable saves and one ball off the woodwork, Mamic squeezes home the rebound and surely wins it for Olympia! What an unbelievable finish to a great game!

105′ Bomford finds some space in the box, but is brilliantly run down by the defender and it rolls out for a corner.

104′ A corner and then cross from Horgan lands in the arms of Farrow, who may have been fouled as she fell towards the goal line. Did the ball cross the line? The official says no, and with no foul called she plays it out.

101′ Bomford shot Bonnie Davies picks the ball up at halfway and takes it all the way to the byline, her cross finds the feet of Bomford but her shot scuffs into the arms of Gardner once again.

100′ And we’re straight back into it after the change of ends.

100′ Half time in extra time, with the score still 0-0.

Both teams are still running hard and threatening from the wings, but the crosses at both ends aren’t quite finding the target.

98′ A curling effort from Horgan is comfortably saved.

94′ Leila Hickman takes an attacking free kick and crosses to the back post, where it floats just over the head of Moore.

90′ Extra time is underway, who can find one last push?

94′ The full time whistle blows, and we’ll get some extra football here at KGV!

94′ Emile Tatton makes a great run down the right hand side, but her cross is brilliantly cut out by Michael.

91′ Late cross in from the Warriors takes a deflection from the defender, and Gardner makes a fantastic safe after being totally wrong-footed. That almost snuck in at the near post!

89′ Michael wins the ball in the midfield and immediately plays through Chambers, who drives into the box and shoots straight at the keeper’s feet.

87′ Chambers has found a second wind, as she flies down the left and crosses once again. It finds the feet of Davies, but her shot flies well over the crossbar.

85′ Big shout for a penalty for the Lions, as Michael looks to reach out a hand and block a cross from Davis. Massive no-call there, it could have gone either way!

83′ Jade Williams shoots from range after a patient buildup, but again the shot is straight at the keeper.

81′ Mamic is looking dangerous, as he shoots just wide from the right hand side.

80′ From a throw in on the left, Chambers crosses to Mamic at the near post and her attempted flick falls into the keepers lap.

78′ Slice of cheese for Christabelle Moore.

78′ Chambers to Davies header Just after subbing back on, Chambers makes another bursting run and crosses hard into the middle. Davies meets it solidly with the head, and it whistles just wide of the post.

Both teams are pressing forward with great intent, but the execution is just a little off at the moment. Some tired legs starting to take effect. 

70′ Davies winds up from a long way out, but the shot is always wide of the Kingborough goal.

68′ Emile Tatton makes a jinking run to the edge of the box and finds Christabelle Moore in the middle, but she can only squeeze through a slow ball straight to the keeper.

67′ And just like that, Michael is back on the field. Great news!

65′ Innocent Michael rolls her ankle in a 50-50 contest and goes down hard. She’ll limp off and spend some time on the sideline, and that may be her day over.

Without making any clear chances, the Warriors have dominated the last 10 minutes. They’ve had almost all of the possession and are starting to threaten around the box.

57′ Mamic is played in over the top, but Gardner meets her well outside her area and clears just in time.

56′ Horgan is back on the field, great news for the Lions.

55′ Repeat crosses from the Lions see the ball land with Laura Davis, she evades two defenders but can’t get a shot away before a block from Michael. Great defending, that’s Kingborough’s best chance so far.

53′ Horgan picks up a heavy knock to the head and is slow to recover as the doctors come out. She’ll sub off for the time being, but hopefully will return after some treatment and rest.

49′ Chambers picks up where she left off and drives into the box again, her cross causes some confusion in the Lions defence but they eventually clear.

45′ Olympia kick off the second half.

The Warriors had the run of the play for the majority of the first half, and looked to be pressing for a lead as the whistle neared. The Lions would be relatively happy to be heading to the sheds on level terms, but they’ll need to find a spark from somewhere in the second half.

Madison Chambers has been the best player on the park to this point, as she’s burned every defender down the left hand side. She and Bonnie Davies have linked up well and threatened the Lions defence, but they haven’t quite found the finishing touches yet.

For Kingborough, Laura Davis still looks to be the key. She’s been lively when she’s found the ball, but hasn’t had enough service in the attacking third. She shifted into the midfield late in that half, so it will be interesting to see where she lines up after the break.

48′ And that’s half time, still locked at 0-0 heading into the break.

43′ Innocent Michael drives towards the area and plays through Josephine Mamic, one-on-one with the keeper and she trickles it wide again. Agonisingly close for Olympia!

42′ Zoe Horgan lines up a free kick and shoots from well outside the area, straight into the keeper’s arms. That was always optimistic, but the Lions need some inspiration.

36′ After a prolonged period of defending deep, the Warriors break through Chambers and she crosses again, but only as far as the keeper.

The Lions are fighting hard and pressing high when they get the ball forward, but they’ll need to create some more clear-cut chances.

28′ Gardner looks to clear from the Lions defence and gives it straight to Chambers on the edge of the box, but her shot rolls wide.

25′ Chambers again flies down the left hand side and crosses, but it’s headed clear for a corner.

Halfway through the first half, and the Warriors have started to find some rhythm and momentum. Still no score, but they’ve had the majority of the chances so far after a nervy start.

21′ Isabelle Dadswell and Amy Ollington sub on as the first changes for the game.

20′ Another shot for Russell, and another shot wide from the edge of the box. She’s making plenty of chances for the Warriors.

17′ Chambers makes a fantastic run down the left and her cross finds Heather Russell in plenty of space in the middle, but her shot misses wide. That really should be 1-0!

16′ And it’s Davies again, this time testing the keeper down low from the edge of the box. Olivia Gardner saves comfortably, but Davies looks very dangerous.

15′ Davies fights hard to win the ball at the top of the box but can’t get a clean shot away.

13′ Davis turns at the top of the box and plays in Emile Tatton, but she scuffs her shot wide.

10′ Bonnie Davies finds some space down the right hand side, her cross finds Madison Chambers in the middle but she shoots over the top.

8′ A long ball over the top finds Davis in a one-on-two, but she sneaks through and forces Farrow off her line for the save.

5′ After three straight corners, Davis gets a header on goal but it’s saved well in the bottom corner by Farrow.

4′ Laura Davis already looking dangerous here, as she cuts in from the goal line and crosses into the middle. Cleared for a corner.

1′ The Lions kick off and get us underway here at KGV.
