Belper Town Ladies' winning streak came to an end on Sunday as they lost to Division 1 side Mackworth St Francis Ladies FC in the Ladies Challenge Cup. A highly controversial penalty decision saw Mackworth take the lead before getting a second just before half time. Belper came out fighting in the second half as Louise Hawley returned to the score sheet before an unfortunate own goal secured the victory for Mackworth.
Sarah Jackson was rewarded for her hard work and fearless defending when crowned Dame of the Game by Belper manager Kev Norton.
The ladies have another tough game this coming Sunday, away to league leaders Matlock Town Ladies FC. Belper will hope to return to winning ways as they move their focus away from cup disappointment and towards the battle for promotion.
