The Under 13 Harts came from 2-nil down to win a thrilling County Cup Final against Garston Ladies Mets U13 today at The County Ground in Knebworth.

Suffering a setback 1 minute before the half time whistle when Garston opened the scoring to ensure they had the upper hand at the break. 
Garston came straight out the blocks in the second half to double their lead but Watford continued to press looking to get back in the game. They piled on the pressure and with just 5 minutes to go, Amy Ryan scored to halve the deficit. Watford were back in it and pushed for the final few minutes and with just 2 minutes left, Lola Forsyth dramatically equalized to take the game to extra time.

Extra Time proved fruitless for both sides and eventually the County Cup was to be decided by Penalties. As if the spectators of both teams had't had enough stress during the nail-biting 80 minutes of Normal and Extra time!

Both teams put away 4 penalties in a row and with it at Sudden Death it was Watfords Goalkeeper Grace Harrington who stood firm to make 2 saves and secure the County Cup 7-6 on penalties
Well done Under 13 Harts.
