Maidstone Ladies 1s

Last Gasp Winner Sinks Maidstone
Eager to get on the pitch after two weeks of cancelled matches due to snow and ice, and following the scheduled 2 month winter break, Maidstone made the long trip to mid-table Oxford with fresh legs and confidence of gaining some points.
Oxford were well-drilled, pressed hard, and had all the fight you would expect from a national league side. Maidstone matched their pace and fitness, however, and refused to be broken down. Every player put it 100% and worked well as a team, however they were heartbreakingly defeated by an accurate short corner strike just 3 minutes from time.
Despite the best efforts of the travelling side there was simply not enough time left to find an equaliser and the final score ended 1-0, leaving Maidstone gutted at having not picked up a point.
