They had travelled north for the Eastern Region WFL Premier Division match with only 13 fit players and without goalkeeper Amy Butler.

But as she so often does, centre-back Lucy Hancock donned the gloves and put in a player of the match performance

Their cause wasn't helped by the loss of full-back Catalina Costas to injury after 15 minutes, a set-back that was followed by the first home goal.

But they managed to take the lead, first by Charlene Moreton scoring direct from a corner and then Christina Freestone setting up Adi Milton for a first-time finish after lifting a glorious ball over defence.

The hosts equalised on the stroke of half-time but the walking wounded ensured no more goals after the break and a fine away point.
