SHERRARDSWOOD Ladies played out a 2-2 draw at home to Hitchin Hearts on Sunday.
From start to finish it was a tough match as both teams were on par in terms of ability.
Early on Hearts got a corner that Sherrardswood eventually cleared and Katy Jones received the ball wide on the right.
She ran with the ball to the edge of the Hearts area and hit a powerful shot across goal and into the top left corner to put her side one up.
Soon after Hitchin were lucky to equalise.
The hosts made a defensive error which let their opponents slip through and tap in past the keeper.
Winger Sue Hart took a ball down the left wing at the beginning of the second half and pulled it back and knocked it into Hearts goal area.
Jules Comerford headed the cross over the keeper and into the top of the net to put her side back in front.
From this point on Sherrardswood held on to the lead as both teams attacked and defended well throughout.
Sherrardswood were unfortunate to handball in their goal area towards the end of the game and concede a spot kick.
A Hearts player struck the penalty just past keeper Paula Collis and into the bottom left of the goal to make the final score 2-2.
Collis was named player of match for some great saves throughout the game.
Sherrardswood are away at Hoddesdon Owls on Sunday.
