ALCONBURY U15 Girls lifted their first-ever trophy when they overcame a resolute Hormead Hares on penalties in the S-Tech U15 Girls Plate.
Nothing was easy for the teams in the tough conditions and the sides were locked at 1-1 at full-time and 2-2 after extra-time.
Penalties were needed and the player of the day was Alconbury keeper Steph Wardlow who made the all important penalty save to give Alconbury the win.
Robyn Barlow had blasted them into a first-half lead with a long range effort but Hares bounced back in the second half to equalise and force extra-time.
Georgie Goodwin again put Alconbury ahead, and they seemed set for glory to win until a second equaliser three minutes from extra time took the match to penalties.
