Royston Town Ladies 3
Leverstock Greens 2
ROYSTON Town FC Ladies followed up last week’s 3-3 draw with Leverstock Green Ladies by beating the same team 3-2 on Sunday.
Royston got off to the perfect start and took the lead after two minutes through Jenny Probert.
Things got even better for the home side on 15 minutes when good work from Leanne Buchanan allowed Probert to score her second.
Leverstock gradually got themselves back into the match and pulled a goal back through an own goal from Eve Brindle.
Buchanan then grabbed Royston’s third just before half time with a strike from the tightest of angles.
Leverstock scored the only goal of the second half but Royston hung on to secure a deserved victory.
At the end of game Town’s Manager Steve Buchanan said: “It was a bit nerve-wrecking towards the end but I thought our overall team spirit and determination was superb and we where well worth the three points.”
