Wales U15 Girls make history in Bob Docherty Cup

More drama for the Welsh girls

Wales 0-0 Scotland

Wales win 4-1 on penalties

Wales U15 Girls made history by progressing to their first ever Bob Docherty final in Dublin.

They battled hard for a 0-0 draw against a spirited Scotland side but once again kept their cool to progress on penalties at the AUL Complex.

On Sunday, they overcame the hosts with a shootout win and were even more decisive this time with a 4-1 penalty victory, which sets up a final showdown with Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

The Welsh girls thought they’d won the match in the closing stages of normal time, when captain Ellie-May Sanford latched onto a Lucy Attwood free-kick and fired the ball into an empty net.

But as the skipper was being mobbed by her ecstatic team-mates, the referee inexplicably called the them back for an offside.

Wales weren’t to be denied though as Sam Wynne, Hayley Hoare, Lucy Attwood and Aneeka Bardsley all scored in the shootout while Scotland only scored once.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland beat England 2-0 to win their group and will face Kat Lovett and Matt Clement’s team at 11am tomorrow.
