Broxburn Athletic Girls won the Hayley Lauder League Cup final with a 5-0 win over Spartans Whites at The Spartans Academy. Two goals fairly quickly after half time boosted Broxburn who finished off the game with two further goals late on. Spartans fought hard in the second half to find a way back into the game but it was Broxburn who held out to lift the trophy.
The match began in an up-tempo fashion with both sides eager to get on the ball and control things from the off. However, it was Broxburn who took an early lead when the ball was worked to the back post to Sophie Walker who managed to wrong-foot the keeper and roll the ball into the net. It was a great start for Broxburn who were backed by a large travelling support.
Spartans were sparked into life following the opening goal and a good chance presented itself to grab a quick equaliser. A free kick was awarded near the edge of the box and Rachel Miller stepped up to hammer a shot towards goal. Tegayn Hamilton, in goal for Broxburn, was equal to it and stooped to hold the shot.
The game was very end-to-end at this stage and it was Broxburn who fashioned the next real chance. It was Walker again who was in the thick of the action when she gathered a ball across to the right side and fired a shot on goal but Jodie Barnes saved the shot for Spartans.
Broxburn then had time for a couple of chances before the interval firstly from Megan Williamson who took the ball on a run down the left but the keeper saved her powerful shot for a corner. Then there were two chances for Zoe Evans who muscled her way onto the ball but her shot slid by the far post. Shortly afterwards, the ball was played through the Spartans defence and Evans latched onto the pass but the keeper again saved her low shot.
