Andover New Street Res 1 Lindford 1
(Andover New Street won 4-3 on penalties)
Andover New Street Res won the Hampshire FA Intermediate Cup via a penalty shootout at Alton.
The match against Lindford had ended 1-1 after extra time, having somehow remained goalless in the first ninety minutes. Street, who play in Hampshire County League Division Two, had created a host of chances throughout the game but it was Lindford, who play in Division Four, who had gone closest when Rachel Browne hit the base of the post after 20 minutes.
In extra time it was the North-East Hampshire underdogs who dominated but Lindford were hit by a penalty converted by Street's Stevie Parker after 110 minutes and the sending off of Tiff Taylor for handball on the line.
Undeterred, Lindford stormed back and scored a superb equaliser on 114 minutes, Abbie Kinch crashing home a shot from 15 yards.
The shootout ended when Street netted their fifth penalty to clinch the cup 4-3 after an enjoyable match and a committed display from both teams.
