THE Windsor ladies first team won backyard bragging rights after beating rivals Maidenhead 3s 2-1 on home turf on Saturday.

Maidenhead began the game with confidence and ironically former Windsor player Saskia Swannack was first on the scoresheet following a fine solo run.

Stung into action, the home side rallied and captain Freya Hayter set the bar high with an incredible display of pace, skill and sheer determination.

Her supercharged injection from a penalty corner was coolly slipped by Laura Hayes to Maxine Bonnage on the left and she looped the ball into the goal for a textbook finish.

Maidenhead fought back and steely defensive work from Debbie Campbell, who cleared once off the line and again on the left post, kept Windsor in the game at half-time.

The hosts came out strong in the second half and a loose ball in the D was picked up by Mel Dobson who found the tiniest gap to push it past the keeper for the second goal.

Windsor can still finish in third position in Division One of the Trysports League if they can rack up six points from their last two games, starting with a trip to seventh-placed Abingdon this Saturday.

The second team go into their final game of the season in first place on goal difference following a 2-0 win against Wychwood Badgers last weekend.

In a hotly-contested and tetchy game, the Windsor nerves were settled after Emma Thatcher rounded off a slick penalty corner routine from an acute angle.

It was from a Nikki Hill penalty corner that the away side extended their advantage just after half-time. Drilled to Emma Williams at the top of the D, her clean strike thudded onto the back board.

The umpires abandoned the game shortly after due to a serious injury to a Wychwood player but the result was allowed to stand.

Windsor will hope to wrap up the title at home to sixth-placed Oxford 6s this Saturday.

Windsor men saw their promotion hopes in tatters following a 4-1 defeat at West Hampstead 3s last weekend.

Marcus Barrow-Marques got a consolation goal but the loss means the first team will finish in third place in Middx, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Division Two regardless of the result at Oxford Hawks 4s this Saturday.

It is technically still possible for the second team to win promotion from Division Five after James Fenton and Neil MacFarlane scored in a 2-0 home victory against Phoenix & Ranelagh 2s.

Fourth-placed Windsor however would have to win their home game against table toppers Marlow 4s this Saturday with two other teams also dropping points for that dream to come true.

The third team were beaten 5-2 at home by Oxford 6s and play Division Six promotion hopefuls Marlow 5s in their final game of the season this Saturday.
