Redcar Town 2-3 Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough came from 2-0 down against lower-tier Redcar Town to win the North Riding FA Women’s Cup at York City FC last night.
It was an incredible ending to a match that was turned on its head at the death as Boro scored twice in the final three minutes to break Redcar hearts.
Redcar struck twice in the opening 33 minutes and had chances to extend their lead further before Brooke Newton got a goal back for Boro with 14 minutes remaining. Abby Robson levelled the scores with just three minutes left on the clock before right at the very end, Amber Rodgers struck a highly dramatic winner to seal the trophy for Middlesbrough.
