Laxey inflict Cup shock
 Women's Football News 22 Jan 2009
Laxey inflict Cup shock - 22 Jan 2009 - Women's Football NewsFifteen points separate the two teams in terms of league position but eighth placed Laxey and third place Peel met in the Isle of Man Floodlit Cup last Sunday in Group A, in a match which witnessed one of the biggest qualifying cup shocks as the Miners went onto beat the seeded westerners 2-0.
This victory was no fluke - built on youthful hunger, team spirit and relentless industry. Striker Kelly Barlow was chasing lost causes non-stop while Christina Sutton has witnessed a successful transition from gamekeeper to game poacher and Rebecca Kirk continues to grow in stature as a defender. Dictating proceedings in the centre was captain Kerry Lockwood - responsibility thrust on young shoulders, she was everywhere, distributing sensibly from midfield. Victory for Laxey against Colby on 1 February will see them reach the semi finals of this competition for the first time ever since their formation in 1999.
Clear cut opportunities were at a premium as both sides struggled to settle into any footballing rhythm but with ten minutes played, Lockwood sparked the game into life. Twice the Laxey captain crossed from the left into a congested penalty area but no-one could apply a decisive touch and Catherine Callow's dipping effort just went wide.
Peel had spells venturing into the opposing half led by Emma Faulkner but was closely monitored by Kirk, thwarting any western attacks and the Miners, following a spell of possession and brimming with confidence, took the lead.
Chasing a loose ball from midfield, Barlow collected before threading a diagonal ball to Sutton, her initial attempt was only parried, but she rolled the ball into the net at the second attempt.
Kerry Beattie launched the fightback for Peel, curling a shot narrowly wide and Claudia Konig's testing, dipping effort was well held by Lawson after the break.
Manager David Callow brought on Dawn Winn and she made an immediate impact. The substitute's pass was flicked on by Barlow putting Sutton in the clear, where she unleashed a shot that drew out a full stretch save from Dawson, denying the Laxey striker in the follow-up.
Laxey maintained the pressure through, Lockwood having an effort that was saved by Dawson and Barlow skewing a shot off target. But with only three minutes left on the clock, the Glen Road outfit scored their second and take a step closer to the semis with a goal that will be talked about within Laxey women's AFC for years to come.
Sutton charged down Lisa Kelly's clearance on the right and squared the ball across into the penalty area. Barlow and Lockwood were unmarked, the former doing enough to squirm her effort past Dawson before going in off the post to spark delirious scenes.
Laxey: Voirrey Lawson, Kirsty Egerton, Alexis Teare, Siobhan Golding, Rebecca Kirk, Christina Sutton, Sarah Houghton, Carol Kane (sub Hannah Scott 53mins), Catherine Callow (sub Dawn Winn 42mins), Kerry Lockwood, Kelly Barlow. Sub not used: Louise Smith.

Peel: Jo Dawson, Lisa Kelly, Sandra MacLauchlan, Stephanie Leech, Emma Faulkner, Donna Harrison, Bernadette Dunn, Kerry Beattie, Claudia Konig (sub Alicvarne MacGregor 43mins), Ellie Quayle, Helen Bates.

The remaining Group A match involving Colby and Ramsey was postponed as the northerners were unable to field a team.
The only league match involving Gymnasium and Corinthians was postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.
