Brown was presented with another opportunity after the restart and this time she made it count after shrugging off her player, cutting inside and striking sweetly which unfortunately for Mann slipped in between her gloves!
5 minutes later Megan Verbeeten snatched possession from Harris, powered forward down the line and floated a lovely ball into the penalty area with the hope that one of her team mates would be there to meet and poke home, but Wadmore claimed comfortably.
The goals kept coming and the next started from a Harris cross that looped into the busy Oakwood box and pinged off a player, through no fault of her own and past the line sending the keeper the wrong way.
Almost instantly the action found its way to the opposite end of the pitch and Ritchie got her well-deserved hat-trick after towering above her marker and connecting with a deep cross at the back post to head home.
In the latter stages of the occasion it was Harris yet again who was in on the action. She fizzed a sensational ball over Oakwood’s back line for Brown to pluck down from thin air and strike a sublime effort which nestled into the top corner of the net.
Oakwood gave it their all as the clock ticked down, trying to force the game to extra-time, but Eastbourne held firm to seal the narrow victory and be crowned champions of the Sussex Girls Challenge Cup (under-12s).
Eastbourne Borough manager Dan Fogg praised his sides winning performance after the match: “I think we have all calmed down a little bit now, it was a full on game but they all stepped up second-half and probably deserved to win it in the end.
“I know the quality that they have got so I had to get them going and they showed us why they are so good.
“It’s all down to them, the hard work and they get the rewards for it.”
