As you were as St Albans Ladies and Hemel Hempstead Town draw in battle of top two
PUBLISHED: 06:05 16 January 2020
St Albans Ladies and Hemel Hempstead Town had to be content with a point as the battle between the top two in Beds & Herts Division One ended in a 2-2 draw.
The result means Hemel remain top but the Lady Saints are only three points behind and with a game in hand.
And it was St Albans who bagged the first goal after a bright opening.
Holly Williams put the Hemel defence under pressure after the ball was played into the box by Ellie Lovelock and that caused defence and goalkeeper to get in a muddle allowing Kayla Johnson the chance to fire home.
Hemel responded with two quick goals, the first from Kayleigh Baker and the second from Natasha McConville, but St Albans drew level after Johnson thumped in an Ellen Salter cross.
The second half was a much quieter affair with few chances and Saints will look to continue their challenge at home to Letchworth Eagles on Sunday.
