The Priory School completed a hat-trick of Silver Jubilee Cup victories by beating St Simon Stock School 4-0 in the Final after successive victories in 2009 and 2010.
The Priory took the lead after six minutes when Glancy raced onto a clearance by Merricks down the inside right channel. She outpaced her marker and left her team mates behind, the angle was against the confident striker but she unleashed a thunderous strike that went thought the goal keeper and in off the far post.
This early inspiration had the team reigning cup holders hungry for more and they pinned the opposition back in the early part of the game. The SSS goalkeeper was called into action again and made a great save to tip a Glancy volley around the post.
The girls from SSS had fought hard to get to the Final and were not going to just to sit back and be overrun. They slowly began to force their way into the game and their centre midfielders were playing their part in a great midfield battle with King and Ingram. The Priory were aggressively taking the game to SSS, Glancy was involved again and hit the bar with a looping shot, Ingram had a free kick sail just wide and The Priory had a number of corners cleared as they hunted for goal number two.
With some solid defending, the team in blue grew in confidence and their strikers and midfields become more involved in the game. SSS no8 and no 10 combined successfully but were unable to find a pass to penetrate the Priory defence. With that in mind their no.8 went a marauding 50-yard run to the edge of the Priory penalty area but her low drive was saved and Jones reacted sharply to jump onto the rebound.
Late in the half SSS were awarded a dubious free kick just outside the penalty area on the right side. The No10 produced a great free kick but again Jones in the Priory goal was relishing her chance to shine and clawed the ball any from the danger zone.
After regrouping at half time Priory started the second half with a succession of corner and doubled their lead after Jeffrey volleyed home left footed from 15 yards. With a two-goal lead the team in pink and black found an extra gear and more composure to their play. They passed the ball competently and found successful combinations through midfield and attack. When not in possession the Priory organised and pressured SSS to regain the ball.
On 56 minutes another great corner from Pepper was met head on by King from six yards and the score was 3-0. It was a deserved goal for the Priory captain and a reward for her dynamic display. It was extra special for the Priory number 4 as she along with the first goalscorer Glancy, have has featured in each of the Priory's three finals.
With the wind in their sails the Priory mounted attack after attack. Feagan started a move in the left back position, Glancy left marker behind with a fantastic turn and crossed towards the penalty spot. It was met on the volley by Jeffrey, although her goal bound effort was blocked by one of her teammates. However the loose ball dropped invitingly for Feeney and the substitute stabbed the ball home from ten yards with her first touch.
The Priory School: B Jones, A Merricks, L Henry, C Billings, K Feagan, C Jeffrey, A Ingram, D King, N Pepper (L Feeney), K Jackson (Y Ibrahim), D Glancy. Subs not used: V D'urso, G Miles.
