After drawing 3-3 in normal time, the Worksop College side triumphed 3-2 on penalty strokes.

A school spokesperson said: “The team were all very proud of their performance, which saw every girl score at least once, under strong leadership from captain Emma Bray.”

The national finals take place in January.
