Belles battle well but lose cup semi

Hellesdon Belles 2, Costessey Ladies 3

In a wonderful cup semi-final the Belles lost 3-2 to Costessey.

Costessey scored when their header hit the bar then the post and then the net.

In the second half Oli Kober equalised before a deflected shot gave Costessey the lead. A clinical finish made it 3-1 before Cath Heslin pulled one back to set up a fantastic finish, but it wasn’t to be.

Every player on the pitch put in a superb effort and, as Costessey said after the game, it would have made a great final.

Kim Tomlinson won player of the match in the best game of the season.
