The Hemel Hempstead Town FC Ladies are through to the quarter-finals of the Herts County Cup after a hard-fought 2-1 win over Sawbridgeworth Town FC.

In all honesty, the result should have been decided by half-time, but a 25th-minute goal from winger Kelly Toms was all Hemel had to show for their dominance in the first 45 minutes.

Sawbridgeworth hit back with an equaliser 10 minutes after the re-start, but the Tudors continued to press forward and regained their lead 10 minutes later.

Gemma Darvill worked her way down the right wing, crossed into the box, and a Sawbridgeworth defender headed the ball into her own net for what turned out to be the decisive goal.
