The big Southern Region Women’s Football League Division 1 derby ended in Ascot United’s favour with a 72nd minute winner in a 3-2 win at Woodley United.
Ascot gave a second half debut to new signing Elicia Mulvaney but it was Woodley who struck first on the half hour mark through Rebecca Lowes.
Hannah Evans hit back shortly after for the Yellawomen to send the sides in level at half time.
Ascot lead on 64 minutes through the divisions top scorer Lucy Holzman-Clarke but the home side restored parity two minutes later through Rosie Page-Smith.
With less than 20 minutes left on the clock though, there was one more twist as second half substitute Emma Wallace won the points for the visitors ensuring Ascot a third straight win – keeping the yellows in touch with the division leaders.
In the Thames Valley Counties Division 2 South, Ariesha Stephenson-Lewis rescued a point for Bracknell Town Ladies ‘Dev’ with her third goal of the season in a 1-1 draw at fourth place Wargrave Reserves.
The forward had already had a goal ruled out for offside – as had Wargrave, but it was enough for a deserved point to the Robins.
And in cup action – you have to feel for four goal Shellie Irvine who’s Sandhurst Town side went out of the league cup with a 7-5 extra-time defeat at home to Carterton Town.
The two sides went in at 5-5 at full time – Jessica Loomes scoring the other Fizzers goal but the visitors had enough to move in to the semi-finals.
