ON SUNDAY, Frontiers Ladies got back to action in the Essex County Trophy versus Grays Athletic who play in the league above.
Due to the recent weather the game was played at Mark Hall on the astro.
A very tight game with both teams having good chances but neither team could break the deadlock.
The game headed into extra time where Frontier were on the front foot from the start of extra time with a couple of chances going wayward but Frontiers broke the deadlock when a well weighted ball played through by Carly Snell to the on rushing Tayla Handscomb to slot the ball into the bottom corner.
Just before the end Grays Ath applied pressure and it was Frontiers keeper Jill Bartholomew who pulled off a stunning finger tip save round the post to seal the win.
Frontiers now play Collier Row next week in the 1/4 final.
