The Lewes Ladies fought with great determination against a tough Barnsley side to take the win in the semi-final of the Junior Cup with a final score of 8-5.
The Ladies came back from being a try down with a diamond-cut performance from Josie Nelder who darted across the line from a penalty, after a spectacular set of play from the rest of the team.
Shortly into the second half Nelder took the decision to kick a gem of a drop-goal which floated over the bar and set the final score safely in place.
Mike, of sponsors Mike Shorer Fine Jewellery, said “It was an incredible match; the Ladies have many facets to their game: from great strength and determination to speed and team spirit. They also have a growing fan base that drowned out the visitors’ support from the stand. Well done Ladies and let’s stamp our Hallmark on the trophy in the Final”.
The final of the Junior Cup will be held at Royal Wootton Bassett on the 1st April.
