WGC Hockey Club Ladies remain top of the 5 Counties Women’s Hockey League Premier Division after a 1-1 draw with Bishop’s Stortford.

They made a slow start to the game and Erica Stovold had to be at her best to stop Stortford from scoring.

But they reached half-time level and after a few changes at the break, they looked much better.

They were soon in the lead as Jodie Sharkey made a long penetrating pass for Annabel Mabin to run onto from midfield.

She drove into the circle and fired the ball home before the Stortford defence had time to react.

But just as it seemed as if WGC would claim the three points, Stortford equalised.

Welwyn entertain Luton on Saturday.

Other ladies’ results saw the 2nds narrowly beaten 1-0 by Letchworth and the 3rds draw with Bedford thanks to two goals from Alisa Hassan and one from Hannah Morgan.
