HTWFC Development Team 3 – Durham Women Reserves 3
The Development team allowed a 3-0 goal lead to slip when Durham scored an 89th minute equaliser to share the points. Macy Ellis put Town ahead in the 15th minute when the ball rebounded to her and she finished from close range.
Town dominated much of the half and were rewarded with a second goal when in the 39th minute, captain Tara Duce lobbed the Durham keeper to go in at half time 2 – 0 up.
Town went 3-0 up with 28 minutes of the game remaining when Duce made it 3-0 direct from a corner.
However, within a minute a back pass to Laura Carter in Town’s goal bobbled as she went to clear it and sliced off her foot into the net, 3-1. It was 75 minutes when the fightback continued with Carter lobbed from distance, 3-2.
Further chances came and went for Town but, a misplaced pass at the back allowed Durham in again with just a minute remaining.
Full time 3-3.
Next Sunday the Development team start their County Cup action for the 2019/20 season when they entertain Millmoor Juniors, 1.30pm kick off.
