Some great play throughout the field allowed Weston to capitalise on their performance so far, sheer grit from Lucy Clarke on the far post gave Weston the equaliser they deserved.
After some great play from Dale and Brown, Weston earned a short corner. Super skills from Claire Westgate found Katie Elliot, who put the ball in the back of the net.
