PORT'S under 14s missed out on a place in the regional cup final in a tense penalty shootout.

Macclesfield opened the scoring but Port equalised just before half time when Sian Clowes drilled home an angled shot.

Port stunned their visitors in the second half by taking the lead, Katie Sandison meeting a low right wing cross from Clowes and slotting home from two yards.

Macclesfield got back on level terms late on and in the shootout they kept their nerve to book a place in the final against Port Vale.

Girl of the match for Port was Leoni Devoy.
