Fareham Ladies’ firsts stretched their unbeaten run to eight matches in division 3B of the South Club’s Women’s Hockey League, with a 3-3 draw against Wanderers Ladies.

Having won seven on the bounce in 2016, the third-placed Henry Cort side started brightly but were unable to find the winner in the six-goal thriller.

Emma Jones scored her 22nd goal of the season for Fareham, with Rebecca Close and Emily Masson also on the score sheet for Steve Lemon’s side.

Despite the draw, coach Steve Lemon was impressed with his side’s performance in grinding out a point against difficult opposition.

‘When we played them before they were a strong team, one of the toughest teams that we played,’ he said.

‘I’m disappointed not to get all three points, but the performance was a lot better than the week before.’

Fareham, who are 10 points clear of fourth-placed Surbuton, have two games remaining this season.

Their next match is a home game with Lewes, who thrashed Richmond 4-0 on Saturday.
