Sunday 13th November 2016



Histon finally got their fair share of luck as a 92nd minute goal from Abi Davies gave them a deserved point against Bedford.

Abi Davies
Bedford hit the foot of the post with just 29 seconds gone but Histon held their resolve and were unlucky to go a goal behind after 40 minutes, goalkeeper Heather Cousins misplacing a kick from left of goal and it was sent straight back from 25 yards out, Cousins having no chance of stopping it going in the other side of the net.


Jordanne Sillitoe had a golden opportunity to score in the 71st minute after she was brought down in the penalty area near the bye line after cutting inside from the right channel, but her spot kick went wide of goal.

When the game seemed like it was going Bedford’s way Sophie Lanham laid the ball to the right towards Davies, who typically cut inside her marker before, while off balance, lofting a shot over the goalkeeper from the edge of the area and into the net for a last gasp equaliser.
