On 33 minutes,Lola Gallardo denied Debora Garcia following a great Banni Lay-off. Two minutes later VCFF keeper responded with another fine save at the other end. The first-half finished deadlocked at 0-0 with nothing to separate the sides and all to play for in the second half. The second half was as intense and cagey as the first half. On 55 minutes, Nicart made a crucial last-ditch sliding tackle to stop Corredera from unleashing her shot. On 70 minutes,Corredera’s header rattled the woodwork. Paula Nicart responded with another header that was deflected wide off Yanara with 80 minutes on the clock.
