Greater London Women’s Division One: Hampton & Richmond Borough 2 Clapton Community 2

Clapton CFC women salvaged a point against Hampton & Richmond Borough as they drew 2-2 at the weekend.

The visitors had the majority of possession and chances in the first half with Naomi Scriven bullying the Hampton left back with powerful runs.

The opening goal came from a Scriven delivery from the right that was almost impossible to defend as forward Harriet Plows rushed in to head home.

Hampton headed in a corner at the back post to level the score on the stroke of half-time.

And that equaliser galvanised the hosts, who emerged in the second period with a stronger shape and more attacking thrust.

They took the lead shortly after the restart when a swirling cross deceived keeper Sophia Axelsson and flew straight into the net.
