Haverhill 3 Carlton Park 2

Park started this game very positively and dominated the first half.

They moved the ball well around the pitch and pushed the home side into making errors.

The breakthrough came when Georgie Coulson drove down the right side and crossed the ball into the 'D'. The pass found Denise Manning unmarked and she struck the ball into the corner of the goal.
