The Merit U16 Girls Cup Final: Maidstone United 0 Danson Sports 2
An all-round team display was the key behind Danson Sports’ The Merit U16 Girls Cup Final win over Maidstone United at the Gallagher Stadium.
Early Danson pressure was rewarded after 12 minutes when Kara Penwarden-Bland fed Quiana Dillion-Bent. She still had plenty to do but glided beyond three defenders and calmly found the bottom corner.
Danson added a second just three minutes into the second half. Ruby Dythe’s free-kick into the area was met by the unmarked Coco Cardona who converted from close range.
Maidstone kept plugging away but Danson’s defence - with Melissa Jones and Dythe outstanding at the heart of it - stood firm throughout.
