Leeds Carnegie are through to the Premier League Reserve Section League Cup Final for the first time but only after a tense semi final against Sunderland went all the way to a penalty shootout where goalkeeper Juliana Draycott emerged as her side's heroine.
The match at Houghton-le-Spring was played at breakneck speed and both teams put in a battling display in windy conditions on a very heavy pitch. Sunderland had the better of matters during normal time but were unable to take their best chance to win the game with three minutes remaining when Stacey Simpson's penalty was saved by Draycott.
Both teams went close during extra time but a winner could not be found and the game went into penalties. Draycott again pulled off a fine save and another Sunderland miss meant that Bridie Fox' successful kick turned out to be the winner and Leeds celebrations began.
Leeds must wait and see who their opponents in the Final will be, because the other semi final between Chelsea and Bristol Academy was postponed.
