The future of girls' football continues to go from strength to strength as Wattsfield Under 13s and Kendal United Under 13s went head to head.

Both sides who ply their trade in The South Lakes Girls League played some good football in what was an end to end contest.

However, Kendal United picked up the spoils after a late goal by Clara Sampson which led to wild celebrations among the Kendal team.

Wattsfield were denied a penalty within the first few minutes when Ruby Blamire was upended in the penalty area after going past two defenders.

Kendal had large spells of possession and created a lot of opportunities, but Wattsfield keeper Harli Berry made some great saves to deny Samson and Bethan Saunders.

The game continued to ebb and flow as Wattsfield finished the first half as the stronger of the two teams as both sides were all square at the break.

In the second half, Wattsfield missed a glorious opportunity when Amy Walling's blistering shot on goal was well stopped by the keeper, while the hosts continued to cause problems in the penalty area.

Kendal were very dangerous in possession and created lots of chances through Saunders, Samson and Eisla Theldman.

As the game was petering out for the draw, Kendal grabbed the winner with just three minutes left after a misjudged bounce of the ball fell into the path of Samson who finished from close range.

The goal brought an end to what was an entertaining game of junior girls' football.

Wattsfield are back in action on Sunday, October 29, as they travel to Dalton while Kendal United play Sunday, November 19 as they make an away trip to face Morecambe.
