With a difficult season behind them, St Agnes were thrilled to record a 1-0 victory against Callington, who were so far unbeaten this season, and reach their first final in their seven-year history.
The first half, in the semi finals of the Cornwall League's St Austell Trophies Cup, was an evenly matched game with both teams battling well but but not creating much. Callington were awarded a penalty for a handball in the area but St Agnes keeper Julie Windram was in great form, effortlessly parrying the well struck effort from top scorer Sam May
St Agnes began the second half brightly, pressurising the Callington goal to no avail with Callington defending bravely and breaking on the St Agnes goal but finding the St Agnes back four of Jo Burn, Jainey Curnow, Lyndsey Cowl and Kathy Woolson solid in defence of their goal.
Half an hour into the second half, midfielder Kirsty Dilley placed an excellent ball out wide to forward Tracie Burley, a constant thorn in the side of the Callington defence, who beat two defenders and placed the ball hard and high over the Callington keeper into the net.
The longest fifteen minutes then occurred with both teams eager to secure a result - Callington came very close to equalizing through Kate Lewis but her shot was blocked by the keeper's feet and then Jodie Shipton's brave header was cleared off the line by Burn. Callington keeper Sara Rowe back pedalled well and leapt to save a long range strike from Burley, who struck a high lob in the dying minutes as St Agnes held out for the victory.
