Ladies: Buckland come from behind to win

21 January 2019

Buckland Athletics Ladies scored a late second half winner to deny Cheltenham Town Ladies a point on their travels in Devon on Sunday.

Laura Gough's 86th minute goal denied Alex Cheal's side in a game where the Ladies had twice led.

Annie Martin's first half goal after linking up with Ella Hitchcox broke the deadlock just past the half hour mark, though the hosts levelled on the stroke of half time when Jana Richards levelled the contest.

A Rose Knuckey goal made it 2-1 to the Ladies in the second half as they reclaimed the lead, but Buckland would have the final say in the final half hour.

Sarah Stacey netted to make it 2-2 and then right at the end Gough struck to earn Buckland a win that sees them sit fifth and sees the Robins Ladies remain in 3rd - seven points behind leader Southampton.

Elsewhere, the Ladies Development side were also on their travels with a trip to Swindon Town Ladies Development.

Emma Levett scored a goal for the Development squad, but a brace by Victoria Taylor saw Swindon come out on top.

Next up for the Ladies first team is a home clash with Larkhall Athletic on Sunday at the DN Fire Stadium in Cheltenham.
