WOMEN'S FOOTBALL: Highworth triumph in thriller
HIGHWORTH Town Ladies edged an 11-goal thriller at Trowbridge as they triumphed 6-5 in the pouring rain.
The hosts surged into a 2-0 lead and Highworth had a goal disallowed before pulling one back through Hannah Dagleish following a good run.
Trowbridge restored their two-goal advantage, only for Kerry Walklett to find Hannah Luker who blasted into the back of the net.
The home side were 4-3 up at the break with Dagleish getting her second goal after chipping the keeper.
Dagleish added another two goals in the second half and a superb run by Walklett saw her get past three defenders before scoring from the edge of the penalty area.
A penalty gave Trowbridge late hope but Highworth hung on to triumph 6-5.
Highworth team: Vanessa Eve, Liza King, Anna Margetts, Shannon Gabb, Lauren Stephenson, Krissy Gorner, Hannah Dagleish, Charlotte Robinson, Sarah Rayworth, Hannah Luker, Charlotte Bailey, Kerry Walklett, Lucy Gray (c).
