France scored in the seventh and 18th minutes of the clash to seal the game, but it could have been by a larger margin with the top club attacking in waves, which forced their opponent to defend with large numbers.On the other pitch, the older Tigers were able to outlast the younger GCC GBTI Spartans.As she has done over the years, Jardine made the difference. Collecting the ball just over the halfway spot, the 40-year-old turned on her marker and then beat two other defenders before she faked the goalie to push the ball into the uprights.Although there were several attempts by both sides, the fifth-minute first-half goal proved to be the decider.The female semi-final clashes were both one-sided affairs. After a 0-0 first half, the Spartans dominated Saints in their final-four battle.
