Ladies denied in Women’s FA Cup

7 December 2015

The Ladies exited the SSE Women’s FA Cup at the first-round stage after a defeat at home to Crystal Palace.

The Dons enjoyed spells during Sunday’s tie and started the game brightly, however they failed to convert two great chances early on.

Those misses proved crucial as Palace took the lead midway through the first half thanks to Alma Donohoe’s finish.

The Dons responded well after falling behind but their visitors extended their advantage from the penalty spot on 55 minutes.

With their two-goal advantage, the Eaglets began to dominate proceedings and soon after the hour mark Alma Donohoe doubled her tally before Gemma Bryan added a fourth goal late on to secure her side’s passage through to round two.

Starting XI: Anderson, Cudone, Doyle, Gillings, Holland, Hollingsworth, Kirby, McDonnell, Watson, Wright.

Subs: Clarke, Lander.
