Long Lane 5 Brentford Women’s 4

Brentford ladies lose a 9 goal thriller in the FA Cup


Brentford ladies started well confidently playing the ball out from the back and goals from Dana Johnson put the Bees two nil up.


Long Lane soon pegged the Bees back to two all after the Bees could not clear the ball.


The Bees restored their lead when Vicky James scored from the spot after Little Lisa was fouled in an off the ball incident


Long lane equalised from a header and the Bees went in 4-3 up at half time when Claire Richardson,  unmarked at the far post head in Vicky James curling cross.


Long Lane piled on the pressure in the second half leaving the Bees to defend deep. The Bees chances were restricted and Claire Richardson was unlucky to see her free kick go narrowly wide.


Two goals from Long Lane made the score line  5 v 4 and gave the host victory and passage into the next round.


Brentford WFC: Caroline Brooks (keeper), Sophie Lee, Manuela, Charlotte Tanner, Amber Luzar, Vicky James (skipper), Claire Richardson aka Goody, Sophie T, Lisa Grant, Lucy Gibson and Dana Johnson.
