Lowick suffered a 3-1 defeat in the County Cup when they travelled to take on Prudhoe on Sunday.

The north Northumberland side travelled with 13 players but after an injury in the warm up, the team had to be reshuffled, which meant some players playing out of position.

Lowick started brightly and took the lead when a ball from captain Kirstie Tang found in-form striker Michelle Stewart who slotted home to put the visitors in front..

Lowick seemed to then sit back and invite Prudhoe onto them.

It didn’t take long for the home side to penetrate the Lowick defence and they soon drew level, which meant the sides turned around at 1-1.

In the second half Lowick seamed to lose concentration and sat too deep, which Prudhoe took full advantage of.

It was a defensive mix up that led to Prudhoe’s second goal with a shot which left keeper Laura Powell no chance .

The hosts then made it 3-1 when the referee awarded a dubious penalty. Keeper Powell went close to saving it but the ball squirmed under her body and into the net.

Lowick did managed to create some chances but it wasn’t to be their day.

Lowick are now out of all cup competitions but can turn all their attentions to the league.

Best for Lowick was Powell, Georgia Thompson and ‘Player of the Match’ winner Kirsty Tang.

Lowick are back in league action on Sunday when they take on Middleborough Lionesses.

Lowick, with four wins out of five so far, currently sit fourth in the Ladies Northern League.

They are six points behind leaders Boldon, but have the advantage of two games in hand.

Middlesbrough sit tenth out of 11 with only one draw to their credit so far.
