On Friday 4th May Worthing College played BHASVIC in the women’s U19 Sussex Cup Final looking to retain the title for an 11th year in a row. After beating Newman in the semi final the girls knew they would have a tough battle against a talented BHASVIC side.
The match started off evenly and was end to end exciting play. Worthing created quite a few chances but could not convert and went into the half time break 0-0.
In the second half the girls stepped up the intensity creating more chances and finally Millie Carter scored for Worthing College to the delight of the team and their supporters. The girls continued to press for a second goal but it was not forthcoming on this occasion.
The final score was 1-0 to Worthing, a close final and a great result for the girls who retain the Sussex Cup for another year.
Player of the match – Millie Carter with captain Sara Tubby.
