STAR striker Chemise Huitson netted a hat-trick to land Gosling Ladies Under-12s the Mid Herts Rural Minors League Cup on Saturday.

The WGC side beat Bedwell Rangers 7-5 in a tense game at Panshanger Football Club, with Huitson the difference between the two teams.

Gosling had won their way through the pink group stages to face Bedwell in the final. Rangers won the purple pool.

After five minutes some smart Gosling play saw Niamh Blackwell slot the ball home.

A corner was then met with an astonishing right-foot volley from Blackwell to put Gosling two up.

By this time Gosling had their tails up and Chemise Huitson went on a mazy run to add the third.

Soon after Chemise added her second, before Bedwell finally got the goal they deserved. Sub Grace Bullock then tucked home.

With Gosling leading 5-1 at half-time, the more experienced Bedwell team came out for the second half with all guns blazing.

It took excellent work at the back from Eleanor Holt and Emily Bullock to keep them at bay.

Bedwell were awarded a penalty and scored another one soon after, taking the score to 5-3.

The tension was mounting when up popped Chloe Pressley to make it 6-3.

Chemise then went on to complete her hat-trick.

Bedwell seemed to get a second wind as the Gosling girls tired, scoring two goals in quick succession very late on.

The game finished 7-5 with Gosling Ladies lifting the League Cup trophy.

Chemise Huitson was awarded player of the match by the league sponsor and also collected a ball for her hat-trick heroics.
