Woodley United progressed to the SRWFL President’s Cup semi-final against Abingdon United after a penalty shoot-out win at Woking yesterday.
After a goalless first half, the visitors hit the front with 15 minutes to go when Gemma Sims curled a free-kick in, after goalkeeper Roz Markham handled outside the box. However, the lead lasted just four minutes as, from another freekick, this time from 30 yards, Sheena Nicholl deflected up off the wall and into the net.
With no further goals, it went to a penalty shoot-out. With Woking missing their spot kicks, it was Woodley United who won the day.
