MORGAN Walsh scored a dramatic late goal for Flamingoes on Sunday to hand her side a well-earned 1-all draw against the Breakaways.
Flamingoes trailed the Breakaways for most of the contest after a goal from Hannah McMillan gave them an early lead.
But Flamingoes managed to withstand constant attacks from their dangerous opponents and snatched an equaliser through Walsh’s field goal.
Her effort in the final 10 minutes caught the Breakaways defence by surprise and Flamingoes held on for a deserved draw.
Flamingoes team manager Lee Boundy said she was satisfied with the result and praised her side’s defence for restricting the Breakaways’ goal-scoring opportunities.
“We were happy to hold them; they beat us 1-0 last time we played and they were leading again for a long time,” she said.
“The Breakaways attack is very dominant and we had to do a lot of defending to keep them out.
“Our goalkeeper, Sarah Watson, was outstanding and Jane Boundy and Nic Armstrong were very reliable at the back.”
In an evenly contested match, Boundy said the Breakaways were also fortunate to only concede one goal as Flamingoes striker Kate Frizell created constant problems for their defence.
Meanwhile, in other women’s games on the weekend, Servies continued their impressive start to the season with a 3-2 victory over PLC.
Servies managed to gain ground on their first grade rivals, United, as the competition leaders suffered a shock 3-1 loss to Harlequins.
