Arnold Town Ladies second team made it three wins in a row having beaten Mansfield Town for the second time in a fortnight.
Today’s game was a cup fixture with both sides eager to progress to the next round.
Mansfield, playing at home, took the lead but were soon pegged back by a Lottie Swinscoe header from an Arnold Town corner leaving it all square at half time. Goals were hard to come by and the game finished 1-1 taking it into extra time.
Arnold showed their fitness levels were good and took a two goal advantage in the first 15 minutes when Ciara Button turned and shot through the crowded box to make it 2-1 before Chloe Stocks was put through one on one with the keeper and placed it past her to make it 3-1.
They then held on until the last nine minutes when Mansfield scored their second to make the last few minutes more tense, however hold on they did and progress to the next round. Lottie Swinscoe won Arnold’s player of the match.
