Yeovil lift Somerset Cup
 Women's Football News 21 Apr 2011
Yeovil lift Somerset Cup - 21 Apr 2011 - Women's Football NewsYeovil Town clinched the Somerset FA Senior Women's Cup with a 3-0 win over Larkhall Athletic in the Final at Shepton Mallet on Tuesday. 
Two early goals settled any nerves the Premier League favourites may have been feeling but Larkhall were never out of the game until Jemma Tewkesbury scored her second of the match with around twenty minutes left. Even then the South West League promotion chasers pressed forward but were unable to score the consolation goal they deserved.
Yeovil took around 20 seconds to open their account when Laura Bray got free on the left and crossed for an unchallenged Tewkesbury to head in via a post. Larkhall poured forward in search of an immediate reply but were caught on the break after eight minutes by a fine solo effort from Bray.
Larkhall pressed and penned the Glovers back in their own half for long periods but were mainly restricted to long range shots and set piece deliveries from Jodie Whaley.
Yeovil nearly extended their lead as Tewkesbury was foiled by a fine Charlene Rooney tackle, then a by a goal line clearance of a header from the resulting corner on 37 minutes.
After the break, Larks almost halved the deficiit straight away when Kate German beat Simkin to a through ball but was unable to find the net from a tight angle. The pace of German, Emily Harrington and Cheryl Baber down the slope was a menace to the Glovers defence, forcing Simkin to dash from her line to sweep up on several occasions.
However it was Yeovil's top scorer Tewkesbury who settled the outcome with a fine finish from 15 yards into the bottom left corner after a quick attack down the right. Although German again went close with a similar effort to her earlier near miss and there was some late Larkhall pressure, no consolation goal rewarded a good performance by the underdogs.
Another fine evening brought out around 350 spectators with both teams receiving enthusiastic support. Yeovil skipper Simkin lifted the Cup and appropriate champagne celebrations were conducted with management and players, the result hopefully giving them confidence for the League battles ahead.
