CEFA Cup Success

Derby County B (Women) started off their EFL CEFA Cup campaign with an empathetic 6-2 victory over Lincoln City. Player of the match Holly bagged a hat-trick from midfield in a great individual performance as her side led 6-0 before two late goals reduced the deficit for Lincoln.

Holly Player of the Match

Derby started off on the front foot and had a couple of chances before taking the lead in just the fourth minute as a header found the far corner. They then added two long range goals in three minutes to race into a 3-0 lead. Lincoln looked to find a way back into the contest but ultimately failed to call the Derby 'keeper into any real action.

The second half started as the first did with the hosts on the front foot and saw a good effort held by the 'keeper. Lincoln then had a spell of their own but again Derby looked more likely to score as they missed a great chance to stretch their advantage. 

A deserved fourth did come on 56 minutes as after another good stop from the Lincoln 'keeper a long range effort found its way into the back of the net.

Derby added a fifth from close range before Holly's hat-trick was complete just moments later. Lincoln then staged a mini fight back as they scored twice in a matter of minutes but it was too little too late as Derby held on for the win to progress in the cup. 

Elsewhere our other women's side recorded an 8-1 cup win over Manchester City and we took two wins, a draw and two loses from the other games we were involved in.
