Harworth Ladies knocked out of Sheffield Cup by Bentley Ladies

Harworth Ladies were knocked out of the Sheffield Cup following a 2-1 defeat to Bentley Ladies at the Jones Recreation ground, writes John Mushet.

In the Bentley team was none other than Teri Harper, the former World Super featherweight boxing Champion.

Right from the start both sides were playing good attacking football in very cold conditions.

Harworth struck the Bentley crossbar on three occasions.

With some really smart counter attacking football Bentley scored two good goals to take them in at half-time with a 2-0 lead.

The second half saw both teams starting where they left off, playing entertaining football and looking for further goals.

On 62 minutes a goalmouth scramble saw the ball deflect off a Bentley player for a Harworth goal.

Both sides had several more chances but Harworth were unable to force an equaliser.
