Vixens Earn First Point at the Death

A last minute equaliser by captain Alarna Fuller rescued a point for the Vixens who drew 3-3 with Stoke City Ladies, earning them their first point of the season. 

After the action, Stoke’s Emily Owen received her marching orders from the referee.

The scoring was started in the sixteenth minute when a ball was played into the box and Ash Hayes found herself on the end of it, heading past goalkeeper Beth Davies.

Just after the half-hour mark, Guiseley drew level. Chantelle O’Hara cut in from the byline, shooting and her shot found the cheek of the goal.

Ellie Hall was brought down in the box after playing the ball through the defender’s legs. O’Hara’s penalty was saved but she tucked away the rebound smartly.

Stoke started the second half brightest out of the two sides scoring two minutes in, Hayes again scoring a header.

Seven minutes later Stoke went ahead for the second time. Hannah Keryakoplis getting in on the action, with another header for Stoke to make it 3-2.

The Vixens didn’t back down, attacking at every opportunity. A last-minute freekick in added time was floated into the box by Emily Scott where captain Alarna Fuller met it with her head, getting a slight touch off a defender before going in to seal the Vixen’s first point of the season.

The next task for Guiseley is Wednesday’s trip up to Middlesbrough.
