Ladies depart FA CUP in 1st round of qualifying

Steelwomen Fail to perform in FA Cup opener.

Corby Town Ladies first ever FA Cup entry was to be short lived, with a disappointing performance away to Riverside LFC.
Both teams started slowly however Corby looked the better of the two sides but seemed unable to create any real goal scoring chances, Corby did open the scoring however when a deep cross from Nicole Coull was volleyed over the keeper from the edge of the area by Zoe Watkins. Riverside continued to hold a high line and compress the playing area leaving Corby unable to beat the offside trap, with Riverside looking dangerous on the break.
HT Riverside 0-1 Corby Town
Remarkably the second half started slower than the first, Riverside still looking to break with pace and Corby restricted to a few half chances from distance, Riverside pulled level mid way through the first half after breaking down the right hand side and delivering a ball across the face of the goal for the on rushing midfielder to tap in unmarked. Corby looked a shadow of the side they have shown to be over the past couple of years and during pre-season as they struggled to find any sort of rhythm. They did manage to find the back of the net again through Zoe Watkins however it was judged to be offside. With 5 minutes remaining and the game looking set for extra time Riverside scored the crucial goal, again on a breakaway this time down the left, the player was held up however with teammates lining up on the edge of the box the riverside attacker was able to pull the ball back for her teammate to side foot home.
FT Riverside 2-1 Corby Town
Disappointing from Corby, lessons will be learnt, and improvements needed as they start their tough league campaign at Steel Park on Wednesday night.
