Harleston Magpies Under 18 Girls reached the last eight of the National Cup after equalising in the last 20 seconds and then winning on sudden death penalty flicks.

Magpies made a poor start after conceding a goal within three minutes due to poor marking, but Jess Bloom levelled the scores after 17 minutes. Canterbury were back in front after 25 minutes and went in at half time with a 2-1 lead.
