Rotherham United edged Mansfield Town on penalties in the Her Game Too Shield, watched by 1,124 at the New York Stadium 

The Stags’ Tia McDonagh saw her deflected effort well-saved by Maria Ward, while Lauren Winter’s drive for the Millers brought a smart save from Vanessa Kinnerley.

Winter was also denied an opportunity by an excellent recovery challenge, while Mansfield’s Millie Edwards and Grace Shipman were unable to profit from a stray back pass.

Rotherham’s Rachel Hale headed inches over from a Dina Sarayreh free kick, Mansfield’s Amy Dawson hit a powerful effort that Ward was equal to.
