Unbeaten Start Continues
Maidstone Ladies 2s continued their unbeaten start to the season as they made it 6 wins from 6 in the Kent Ladies Premier League. Maidstone started off well and had a lot of advanced possession early on but couldn't make it tell as the Anchorians keeper pulled off some fantastic saves from skipper Sue Leaning. Suddenly it was Anchorians that had some pressure of their own and could have gone into the lead but for a superb double save from Maidstone keeper Sarah Ward. As the first half drew to a close it was Maidstone who went into the lead as their sustained pressure told and player of the match Sue Smith converted from a short corner.
Maidstone kept their heads in the second half and despite Anchorians fighting hard throughout they continued to play their own game and extended their lead through another Smith short corner conversion. The Anchorians keeper continued to limit the score-line but it was Maidstone who had the last say when Helen Brown pounced on yet another save and poked home the rebound.
