Olton Ladies 2 Trojans 2

EUROPEAN hockey could be coming to Grange Road next season if Olton ladies see off Slough tomorrow.

EUROPEAN hockey could be coming to Grange Road next season if Olton ladies see off Slough tomorrow.

A win would keep them in second place with just two games remaining however if they lose they could slip down as far as fifth place.

Last weekend they were frustrated by a Trojans side intent on staying in the division.

Rachel Walker turned and hammered the ball into the net on 15 minutes to open the scores but despite going down to nine players the visitors fought back.

Against the run of play Sally Gibson burst through to score the equaliser.

A minute later and the Grange Road faithful were left shell-shocked as Gibson made no mistake when she was gifted the perfect opportunity to put her side ahead.

The crazy three-minute spell then saw Denise Marston-Smith level the scores once more, and despite Olton laying siege to the Trojans goal, the away side held out for the win.
