Sheffield see off Barnsley threat
 Women's Football News 21 Jan 2011
The last FA Women's Cup sponsored by E.ON First Round tie to be resolved was that between Barnsley and Sheffield FC with the latter winning 2-0 to book a home tie against Loughborough Students.
Having suffered two postponements on their own pitch, Barnsley conceded home advantage to Sheffield where the first attempt to play the game fell victim to a frozen goalmouth.
With heavy rainfall a possibility, plans were in place to stage the game at Barnsley last Sunday if Sheffield's pitch was ruled unfit, but in the end it was Sheffield on whose ground the tie was played and fortunately the 1.00pm kick off meant the first half avoided heavy rain which affected a decent chunk of the second half.
Sheffield beat Barnsley 3-2 last May to all but mathematically secure the North East League Premier Division title (and promotion to the Northern Combination) in a thrilling climax to the season when Barnsley, who were twice ahead in that game, knew that victory would have put the title in their grasp.
This season both teams top their respective leagues with Sheffield having 11 wins from 13 games and Barnsley maximum points from their eight. Sheffield had the benefit of County Cup action on the Thursday, while Barnsley were playing for the first time since November.
Mel Cook gave Sheffield an early lead, firing home from the far left angle of the penalty area. Kath Hemmingway saved fairly comfortably from Kayleigh Mitchell and Nicolle Jepson in a first half which ended 1-0 to Sheffield.
Jepson flashed a header wide early in the second half when on another day the net would have bulged. Marie Widerman made it 2-0 to give a score more in keeping with the superiority Sheffield enjoyed on the day.
However, Barnsley will not be too disheartened and having finally got back to playing again they will be looking to carry on where they left off in the league.

Newcastle Utd made it through to the Third Round, thanks to a 2-0 victory over Liverpool Feds.
The deadlock was broken in first half injury time, Beth Gardener providing a good finish to send the Premier League side ahead.
Liverpool Feds made a good start to the second half but Newcastle stood firm and they sealed the victory with fifteen minutes remaining, Gardener scoring her second goal following a good run by Megan Beer.
Newcastle face a long journey in the next round, to Colchester Utd who came through a tricky tie at Tottenham Hotspur with a 2-1 win.
Sam Pittuck had put Spurs ahead but the U's hit back to claim victory with goals from Hannah Gowland and Helen Bass (see match report).
Four Second Round ties are still outstanding and they are set to be played this Sunday, weather permitting.
