Alissa’s bel­ter shoots Down high-fly­ing Mil­ton Keynes

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

A BEL­TER of a strike from Alissa Down saved Den­ham Ladies a pre­cious point at home at home to high-fly­ing Mil­ton Keynes on Sun­day,

The hosts were trail­ing to a well­worked goal by their ri­vals from up the M1 when Downs un­leashed a 30-yard pearler which flew into the roof of the net.

Both keep­ers en­sured it fin­ished 1-1, leav­ing Den­ham ninth in the stand­ings.

The re­serves, mean­while, took brag­ging rights from their derby with Weald­stone, thump­ing them 5-1 at The Den.

Elishia Allen’s brace led the rout with fur­ther goals com­ing cour­tesy of Char­lie-Leigh Dixon, Crys­tal Clarke and Lau­ren Page.

Among the club’s youth sides, the U13s were the only win­ners, beat­ing Bed­well Rangers 4-2. Bed­well led 1-0 at the break but Grace Nwoseh turned their for­tunes around with a quick-fire dou­ble.

Kaitlin Brown made it 3-1, but Bed­well struck back and it needed Nwoseh to tee up Lau­ren Clarke for a fourth five min­utes from time to seal the points.

Mean­while, Kayleigh Cur­rivan’s hat­trick proved only enough for a point for the U15s as they drew 4-4 with Crys­tal Palace.

Cur­rivan’s hero­ics and an An­nie Walsh strike saw Den­ham lead 4-1 be­fore a rous­ing fight-back drew Palace level.

Even then the hosts may have won as they hot the cross­bar twice and the post once in a goal­mouth scram­ble in the dy­ing min­utes.

Else­where, Amy Martins’ goal could not save the 10-men Se­nior De­vel­op­ment Squad from a 2-1 de­feat to Crys­tal Palace and the U12s lost by the same score away to En­field de­spite a late goal from Mad­die Kirkby.
