FOLKE­STONE Op­ti­mists ladies kept their pro­mo­tion hopes alive af­ter se­cur­ing a 3-1 win against Old Loughto­ni­ans in East League Divi­sion 1 South. Folke­stone started strongly and opened the scor­ing when Lucy An­der­son and Polly Wit­tle­ton com­bined to set up Zoe Hoare, who fired home. Hoare then quickly added her sec­ond af­ter latch­ing on to a loose ball in the D and fir­ing home. The home side looked to find a way back into the game and de­spite the best ef­forts of Folke­stone goal­keeper Amy Bum­stead, they man­aged to pull a goal back be­fore half­time. In the sec­ond half, Lauren Ged­des and Laura Bra­zier per­formed well at the back for Folke­stone to foil op­po­si­tion at­tacks. Folke­stone then made the points safe when Wit­tle­ton played the ball into the path of Lucy An­der­son, who rounded the keeper and slot­ted home.
