Bury Ladies 1s v Tunbridge Wells. Score; 3-3

Bury started this game knowing they had nothing to lose but desperate to get off that lonely one-point mark, especially as they were missing coach Sharon Holton and other key members of the squad due to other club commitments.

The start saw Bury play their best hockey all season, with the whole team giving 100% and applying pressure on the Tunbridge Wells defence. Bury opened the scoring with great play from the midfield of O'Neil, Rees, Barrow and Bedford, who found pacy Naomi Lofthouse to fire home in open play.

Tunbridge Wells fought back, equalised and then caught Bury on the back foot to score from a short corner.

Bury were awarded a penalty flick from a very bad stick tackle that saw the visitors reduced to 10 men with a yellow card. Skipper Faye Barrow stepped up to the mark to take the flick and made no mistake, firing past the keeper to level.

Unfortunately, Tunbridge Wells were awarded another short corner and this saw them once again taking the lead.
