ALEX Nicklin and Amie Savva both grabbed a brace as Harriers comfortably made League Cup progress at the expense of Droitwich Spa and a 5-2 win on Sunday.
The girls have been in fine league form as of late but have found their season a little disjointed thanks to postponements.
While they may not have been at their fluent best, they saw off the challenge of Droitwich thanks in part to an emphatic first half in which they netted three goals without reply.
Nicklin netted a cool first as she picked up on Amber Lawrence’s neat pass before rolling a finish beyond the goalkeeper. Lawrence scored herself to make it 2-0 with a 20-yard lobbed finish.
Hannah Trowmans in the home goal then saved a penalty with a smart stop from twelve yards, before another excellent run and finish from Savva put the hosts in total control.
Savva’s clever movement saw her peel free in the area after the break to make it 4-0, before the visitors pulled a couple of goals back, including a first from a very tight angle.
The day would finish as it started, though, with a great goal from Nicklin as she chested the ball down in the area before turning and firing it beyond the goalkeeper and into the far corner.
That quarter-final victory sends Harriers into the semis where they will meet Coventry Sphinx on Sunday, 18 March 2018 at 2pm at COSE.
