In the dying seconds L4s snatch win from the jaws of defeat

14 October 2017, 10:30, Banbury Road North (Near)

Ladies' 4s 2 - 1 Wallingford Ladies 2s

After a rough start, Wallingford warmed into the game the better and their best player (no.37) drove all the way into the D and won a short corner, but they didn't convert. Wallingford won four more corners in the first half, to Hawks' single one which showed their dominance. The elder umpire was keen to show green cards for bad tackles but it looked like it was stalemate after 35 minutes before Rebecca Black popped up to drill the ball home. Dizzy was keen for a stroke after the ball hit a foot near the line but from the grandstand it was clearly going wide.

Wallingford sat back in the second half but scored from a big overlap after 17 minutes to equalise through their youngest player Josie with a fine finish. A draw looked the most likely result but Hawks nearly scored with a corner, before Sue Clark found Dizzy inexplicably unmarked on the penalty spot who calmly slotted home. There then followed a confusing discussion between the two umpires as one thought the ball hadn't crossed the line before everyone managed to agree it had. Just about time to restart before the final whistle and the win was Hawks'. Chloe was rightly awarded MoM.
