Keynsham Town are one step away from retaining the Somerset County Cup after beating Larkhall Athletic 5-2 in their semi final.
Keynsham took a two-goal lead through Kat Rusek and Kayleigh Sage but Larkhall pulled a goal back through Emily Harrington and were then awarded a penalty when Keynsham goalkeeper Sarah Bell fouled Nicki O'Connell as she was poised to score. Bell was perhaps fortunate not to be red carded for the offence but Kelly Cripps stepped up to level the scores from the spot.
With Cripps in outstanding form in midfield and captain Charlene Rooney marshalling the defence well, Larkhall hung on to keep themselves in the game against their Premier League opponents.
It wasn't until the last fifteen minutes that Larkhall's resistance was finally broken by Keynsham, who grew stronger during the later stages of the match. Leanne Lapham headed Keynsham back in front from Brianna Oeser's cross and Ana Bruni burst through to produce an excellent finish for the fourth, before Lapham put the result beyond doubt with her second goal.
Keynsham will therefore play Yeovil Town in what should be an eagerly anticipated Final, venue and date is yet to be confirmed.
