|Date||Saturday 3rd December|
|Scorers||Ellen Vigar, Jenny Duggan|
Key Win in Local Derby
Maidstone made the short trip to local rivals Marden in what was a must win match for either side to maintain promotion ambitions this season.
Hungry for the win, Maidstone started hard and dominated the first phase, with man of the match Ellen Viggar opening scoring in the first 15 minutes.
A snapped Achilles for one of the Marden team on the 18th minute halted play for an extended period, raising question marks over whether the match would complete due to light conditions.
After the restart, Maidstone maintained their high quality, with sublime passing keeping possession for extended periods, and tight defending thwarting any attacking opportunity from Marden
A goal from Jenny Duggan in the second half ended Marden chances, and sealed a critical win to keep Maidstone in contact with the top of the table. Next week sees Cliftonville visit Armstrong Road for the last match before the winter break.
