Watford Ladies U14 Harts produced a fantastic performance in the League Cup with a convincing 5-0 semi-final victory over Hitchin Belles Youth U14 Reds that sees them join the five other Club teams to have reached finals so far this season.
The game started at a high tempo with Watford creating many chances but failing to find that finishing touch. Hitchin were giving as good as they got and created chances of their own on the counter, but with no breakthrough for either team the game was tied at half time.
The home side came out strongly again after the break and were rewarded for their pressure when Chloe Ithier intercepted a pass by a Hitchin defender and ran onto goal. Her shot was saved but the rebound fell to Katie Garvin who finished to make it 1-0.
The game continued to ebb and flow but Watford got their second when the ball fell to Faezeh Pilvar on the edge of the box. She quickly cut it back to Charlotte North who coolly slotted it into the bottom corner.
After this the floods gates opened. Within two minutes it was goal number three as a Hitchin clearance fell to Saffron Patel, whose lofted long range shot beat the 'keeper to put Watford firmly in command. Then Maggie Cooke superbly controlled a Katie Garvin corner and blasted the ball past the keeper for 4 - 0.
As the game neared the end Sara Jetha’s corner was flicked on by Maggie Cooke for Charlotte North to get her second and send the Harts into their first Cup final.
The U18 Hornets (pictured) and U16 Hornets have also reached their respective League Cup finals. The U14 and U15 Warriors are both Hertfordshire County Cup finalists, while the U18 Warriors have already won the inaugural U18 County Cup.
The Club will be holding trials from 22nd May.
