Ladies Out Of League Cup

WEST Ham United Ladies were knocked out of the FA Premier Women's League Cup after losing 5-2 to AFC Wimbledon at Kingstonian.

The home side raced into a two-goal lead as Hammers began the game slowly. But a goal from Carly Roache just before the break sent the West Ham Ladies in trailing 2-1 at half-time.

The Dons re-established their two-goal advantage making it 3-1 just after the interval, but still Hammers refused to lay down. Sam Pittuck was inches wide with an angled drive, before a long-range effort from Aofie Aherne flew into the Dons net to make ir 3-2.

Suddenly it was game on again, but as Hammers chased to find an equaliser they were left exposed and AFC Wimbledon added another two goals to knock Hammers out of the League Cup.

WHU: Clare Lacey; Carly Roache, Christina Oshodi, Kate Fanning, Kate Turney, Stacey Crump, Vicky Lewis, Aofie Atherne, Lindsay Morgan, Sam Pittuck, Kerry Stimpson.
