Ashes too hot for Launceston
 Women's Football News 23 Apr 2009
 
Ashes too hot for Launceston - 23 Apr 2009 - Women's Football NewsSaltash Utd won the Cornwall County Women's Cup for the first time, a powerful first half display carrying them towards a 3-0 victory over Launceston in the Final at Wadebridge.
 
The Ashes started quickly and Coral Smith saw a good effort go narrowly wide after latching on to a poor goal kick. The opening goal came after just five minutes when, after being released by Leanne Griffiths, Julie Hewitt produced a superb save from Julie O'Keefe in the Launceston goal. The loose ball was only cleared to the edge of the box where Grace O'Leary somehow managed to dribble through a crowd of players to fire the Ashes into the lead.
 
This settled Saltash down and they began to assert more and more pressure on the Launceston goal, forcing O'Keefe into excellent stops from both Griffiths and Hewitt. Saltash's second goal came on 23 minutes. A corner from Sam Drewery found Emma Jenks coming in at the back post to score with a powerful header.
 
Launceston tried to find a way back into the game but came up against a well marshalled Saltash defence.
 
The final goal of the first half came on 36 minutes and was a carbon copy of the second but with Stacey Arthur finding the net with a free header. O'Keefe pulled off another fine save tipping a fierce drive from Steph Warren onto the bar five minutes before the break.
 
With the heat beginning to take effect on both sides, Saltash eased off a bit in the second half, playing controlled football and they never looked in any real danger of throwing away the cup. Launceston to their credit never gave up fighting to the final whistle with O'Keefe again producing some good stops to keep her side in with a chance.
