Maidstone Earn First Win of the Season

Maidstone oozed confidence on their home pitch with plenty of supporters soaking up the atmosphere & sunshine on October’s hottest day on record as they started strongly, creating chances from the off. Throughout the game the ladies worked hard for each other & made the most of the fresh legs on the bench to share the workload on such a hot day.

Half time arrived with neither team able to break the deadlock, but Maidstone knew that if they kept creating chances and working hard, they would get their reward. They continued to control the game in the second half, and after 52 minutes Hannah Durston was in place to pounce on a goalkeeper rebound, slotting home without error.

With last week’s defeat firmly behind them, the home team continuing threatening to double their lead. Magpies kept them out however, and attempted to level the scores themselves. Maidstone’s defence soaked up any attacks that came their way and Maidstone took away a well-earned 3 points, attributable to the hard work put in by every member of the team.
