Andover New Street manager Trev Knight was full of praise for his players following their 2-0 defeat by Portsmouth in the quarter finals of the Hampshire County Challenge Cup.
The Hampshire County League title hopefuls gave a very good account of themselves against their Premier League opponents and Knight said after the game: "It's not often I am stuck for words, but tonight there really are few words that can honestly sum up how proud I am of my girls tonight!
"We could so easily have crumbled, especially after conceding a very quick goal but we dug deep and worked hard.
"The pace of the game was electric and something for us to think about moving forward, but the second half was nothing short of a perfect performance. The girls gave everything plus more, attacked, defended and never looked to be four leagues below their opposition.
"We produced as individuals and as a team and our fitness was exceptional. Now we have to concentrate on the league game against Christchurch next Sunday and continue pushing for promotion."
Kim Hier opened the scoring for Portsmouth in the ninth minute when latching on to a through ball from Kirsty McGee and Molly Clark added the second on the half hour with a strike from the edge of the area.
