Stafford Town LFC 2 Lichfield Diamonds 3

Lichfield Diamonds took full advantage of ten minutes of stoppage time to beat Stafford Town LFC in their Staffs FA County Cup Quarter Final clash.

Trailing 2 – 1 , Lucy Perry broke down the right fired in a shot across the keeper which was only half saved. Skip Hopton was quickly in to fire home the loose ball for her second of the game.

Another ball in from the flank from Perry found Hopton who crossed for Shannon Edwards to steer home at the back post. But her celebrations were short lived as the flag went up for offside. The decision didn’t please Edwards and she went into the refereer’s book for dissent.

It was only a short reprieve for the home side as in the ninth minute of injury time Emma Dagley slammed home the winner from Karen Clough’s inswinging corner to give her team two semi-finals to fit in this month.
