Dobwalls lift Cornwall League Cup
 Women's Football News 19 May 2009
Dobwalls won the Cornwall League Cup with a surprise 3-0 victory over league runners-up Falmouth Town in the Final at Sticker.
Dobwalls manager, Steve Lee, had all of his first choice players available for this League Cup Final - amazingly, this was the first time this season, that his strongest players have all been available simultaneously. Dobwalls also knew that Falmouth had two players cup tied, so felt that they had a real chance of finishing their season on a high note.
Dobwalls started strongly, and with Falmouth on the back foot, were ahead after four minutes when top scorer Faye Hankinson latched onto a loose ball with only the keeper to beat. This provoked a strong response from Falmouth and they almost equalised
immediately when the Dobwalls keeper found it difficult to deal with an awkward ball that luckily deflected for a corner. Otherwise, Tamsyn Lawrie and Amy Rigby, at the centre of Dobwalls defence, were in determined mood, and Falmouth were finding it difficult to create clear cut chances.
Dobwalls striker Ange Fletcher was having a great game, causing Falmouth much difficulty, and Dobwalls missed several chances to increase their lead before she finally struck to score their second goal. Dobwalls had further chances to increase their lead, but the score remained at 2-0 until half time.
Following the break, Falmouth had their best spell and where unlucky when a ball looped up and hit the bar. Several good attempts on goal also went narrowly wide and Dobwalls keeper, Philippa Davey, got her fingertips to another shot to steer it just wide. Davey also kept out a difficult, low, swirling ball, that was also spinning, following a deflection. This was perhaps her best stop on her way to this important clean sheet.
Dobwalls were now playing more on the break, as their defence resisted Falmouth's attempts to get back into the game. Lucy Borthwick came on for Siobhan Howe early in the half and a slight reshuffle allowed her to play in her favorite position up front.
One felt that the next goal was all important and it was Borthwick who set up Ange Fletcher's second, and decisive goal, with a superb defence splitting through ball. As was the case with her first goal, Fletcher finished confidently, giving the keeper little chance.
Falmouth never gave up following this, but Dobwalls were able to run down the clock with few major scares, thanks largely to an excellent display by the team as a whole. Dobwalls captain, Lucy Rigby, was awarded "player of the match" for her hard working performance that typified the effort from all of Dobwalls players.
For Dobwalls to win the cup in a season that started with five defeats in their first seven games - and this following a bottom of the table finish last season - is testament to the progress that has been made over the course of this season and a great credit to the manager and his players.
