Tranmere 2 Stockport County 1
« on: January 16, 2007, 10:05:03 AM »
Tacked onto the end of a piece about Everton ladies in the FA Cup :

Meanwhile in the Northern Division, Tranmere beat Stockport County 2-1 to put a bit of breathing space between them and the bottom sides.

After the home side opened the scoring through Charlotte Higginson early in the second half, Tranmere were level just a few minutes later through Kate Hooley. Sarah Manning then gave Rovers the lead as she met Lauren Carubia's near post free-kick to head home.

Manager Shirley Waring said: "Considering we had no forwards today I thought we were superb.

"It was a hard-fought victory, we played some good football and scored three good goals."
