Lewes edge out Enfield
 Women's Football News 5 May 2009
Lewes edge out Enfield - 5 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsLewes secured their second piece of silverware of the season as they defeated Enfield Town 1-0 in the Final of the South East Combination League Cup.
Emma Millington's sweetly struck volley was worthy of winning any match and it proved to be the crucial difference in quality between the two teams.
Rooks manager Jacquie Agnew therefore adds the League Cup to the Sussex County Cup, which was won in March by overcoming Brighton & Hove Albion. Both finals
were against teams previously unbeaten by Lewes and this is a measure of the improvement in Agnew's squad this season.
The match was played at Bedford Town Football Club and the Lewes squad were delighted to return from a 260-mile round trip with the Cup. Katie Hodges partnered Kirstie Spice up front in the only change since last week and Hodges put in a Player of the Match performance with her direct and willing running causing problems all afternoon.
League leaders Enfield probably shaded things in terms of possession and territory, looking comfortable on the ball in the middle of the park with neat one-touch passing. However they struggled to create goalscoring opportunities from open play, relying on set pieces that Lewes keeper Trish Gower foiled on several occasions.
In contrast, Lewes played a more direct game and created good chances for Hodges, Brid Carroll and Kiera Chapman. Charlotte Bennett had the ball in the back of the net as she buried a great finish from Helen Whitton's raking crossfield pass but the effort was disallowed for offside.
The game's defining moment came on 75 minutes as Kirstie Spice held off two defenders to flick the ball on to Millington, who hit an instinctive volley from the edge of the area which left the keeper well beaten. Lewes then reverted to a 4-4-2 and captain Kelly Newton went alongside Whiiton to help see out the rest of the game.
Enfield responded well, raising their game to keep Lewes pegged back for long periods. They almost equalised as a corner resulted in a goalmouth scramble but as the dust cleared, it was Gower who once again had the ball in her arms. Lewes saw out the rest of the game without incident and it was just left to captain Kelly Newton to raise the Cup.
Lewes manager Jacquie Agnew was delighted with the result, saying: "It is the players who go out there and deliver the result at the end of the day, they deserve all the praise."
