Hethersett Hearts through to cup final
Hethersett Ladies Hearts are through to the final of the Norfolk Women’s League Cup after a solid, if unspectacular, performance in the semi-finals against Stalham, winning 4-1.
Hethersett always had the upper hand, but at times struggled to really press home their advantage.
However, two goals in each half were enough to take them through to a final at Plantation Park, Blofield on May 6, against either Acle or Thorpe Reserves.
The Hethersett second string took an early lead with a thumping drive from Lisa Ferdani only to see Stalham equalise shortly after.
Top scorer Hannah Waters restored Hethersett’s lead just before half-time with a fine individual goal which saw her cut in from the left before firing home.
You may also want to watch:
Hethersett dominated the second half for long periods with the strength of Ferdani and speed of Waters proving too much for Stalham and it was Ferdani who made it 3-1 with a low shot from inside the box.
Waters then made certain of a final place with her second goal of the afternoon.
