Ash­ford Ladies 3rds 1 Sevenoaks 5ths 0 ASH­FORD Ladies 3rds edged a 1-0 win in their sec­ond league clash only se­cur­ing the points af­ter 85 min­utes when Vicky Gwillim hit Ash­ford’s winning shot from an acute an­gle.

The youth­ful Sevenoaks side held pos­ses­sion well for the very first part of the match. Gwillam, Ruth Hunt, Ju­lia Luck­hurst and Lois Hinx, how­ever, made spec- tac­u­lar runs in their mid­field and for­ward po­si­tions, break­ing the pace of the op­pos­ing team and help­ing Ash­ford to take con­trol of the game.

Emma Payne, Alex Hill and Lauren Hold­stock shone de­fen­sively to keep the Oaks at bay with Steph White com­mand­ing in goal.
