WINDSOR ladies 2s pulled off a feat that no other team has managed this season after a 2-1 win at the previously unbeaten Thame 2s on Saturday.

Windsor took the biggest scalp in Division Three of the Trysports Hockey League and ended a 15-game winning streak for the table toppers who had not dropped a point all season.

Thame unexpectedly found themselves on the backfoot as the visitors took control of the game and were undone by a terrific move.

Emma Williams beat a defender and passed to Emma Batterbee on the right. She in turn found Elle Gatehouse who took a touch and fired in a shot only for it to be saved.

As the keeper went down however Mel Van Huffel was perfectly placed to scoop up the loose ball and calmly slide it over the line to give Windsor the lead.

Stunned by the opening goal, Thame went all out to equalise and Windsor keeper Ruki Sayid made a series of smart saves to deny the league leaders.

But a free hit to the hosts following a foul just outside the D took a deflection from a Windsor stick onto a Thame stick and wrongfooted Sayid who could only watch as the ball hit the backboard.

Windsor restarted full of self-belief and within seconds Van Huffel was on the attack. She was quick to react following a rare defensive error from Thame.

A fluffed pass saw the ball spin out of control in the D and a desperate dive from the keeper to push it to safety failed. Van Huffel pounced and took the ball past the flailing keeper to slam it into the goal.

The visitors found themselves living dangerously in the dying seconds when a last-gasp Thame penalty corner was saved by a diving Sayid. She got a glove to the ball ahead of a striker’s stick at the left post to push it to safety as the final whistle sounded.

The win means Windsor remain in seventh position in the league table ahead of a return to action at home to foot-of-the-table Abingdon 2s on Saturday 29th February.

The Windsor ladies first team suffered a 2-1 defeat at Milton Keynes 2s in a top-of-the-table clash in Division One.

The visitors took the lead through a Maxine Bonnage goal, but they were dealt a blow when captain Freya Hayter saw her game ended through injury.

Milton Keynes levelled with 15 minutes still to play and then struck a killer blow when a moment of hesitation in the Windsor defence allowed a low shot to sneak past keeper Emma Cross to give them the lead.
