The Belles won through to the Women’s Sevens League cup final with a dramatic last-gasp goal against NCBC.

Belles entertained a much-changed NCBC team in the semi-final on Sunday.

Playing into a strong wind it was the Belles who opened the scoring when Heather Heslin slotted home. NCBC then dominated the game and equalised when Belles conceded a soft goal and then NCBC added another.

Half time 2-1.
