ROSS Women stormed into the Herefordshire County Cup final with a 10-0 demolition of Hay St Mary's.

The team, who are all youngsters, were playing the final against Hereford FC Women at Edgar Street on Tuesday night (August 9) after the Gazette went to print.

But they deserved their place there, swatting Hay aside at the Herefordshire FA County Ground last Wednesday.

A superb break saw Lauren Creed put Ross up after just two minutes before Bea Zuka finished well from a superb Macy Walker through ball on 11 minutes.

Immie Stephen in goal was calm and collected at the other end, then close to half-time Lauren added two more for her hat-trick from two superb Eva Flitney through balls for 4-0.

And the second half saw Ross, sponsored by 21Wellbeing, start superbly with great passing football finding the forwards.

Sub Holly Thomas converted a wonderful Macy Walker through ball on 47 minutes for 5-0.

And then on 56 minutes, Flitney made a superb run to fire home the sixth.

It was one-way traffic, as Ella Jones a minute later marked a fine display finishing off another Walker through ball.

It took just another three minutes before the same combination found the net for the eighth time.

Flitney then scored her second on 68 minutes after a mazy run, before Thomas also doubled up on 77 minutes for the 10th and final goal.

Hay worked hard with a battling spirit, but the Ross defence marshalled by Izzy Clarke and Abi Fuszard held firm.

As the game closed tiredness and injury crept in, the electric Scarlett Wood suffering cramp after some great runs.

A Juniors spokesperson: "All the girls had a great run out and did a superb job as a young team facing older opponents.

"Coaches Carl (Roberts) and Darren (Creed) should be chuffed with the girls' passing football from the first minute to the last."

Meanwhile, Ross Ladies also impressed on Sunday running out 5-1 winners at home to Cinderford in the Herefordshire Women's League.

Ellen Phillips filled her boots with four goals, while Maisie Tucker was also on target.

This Sunday afternoon (April 14), Juniors Women - who top the county table - will be back in league action at home to Wellington Mercia.
