Two local sides were satisfied with a point away from home.

Arlesey Town Ladies shared the points in a league clash at Cambridge Rangers.

Pegged back in the early stages, Arlesey gradually began to make inroads and Julia Booker's corner hit the bar. Mia Price then latched on to a through ball in the 23rd minute and made no mistake in shooting home.

Disaster struck just two minutes into the new half when Maria Hilling was penalised for handball in the penalty area and Rangers scored from the spot despite the best efforts of keeper Amie Fage.

Rangers continued to attack but Arlesey held strong and became the dominant side again as the half wore on. Right at the end, substitute Marie Clarke pulled her shot wide under pressure from a defender.

Hitchin Hearts worked their socks off to earn a deserved 1-1 draw at Hoddesdon Owls.

Falling behind to a second-half penalty for handball seemed to be the inspiration they needed to step up the pace. Top scorer Laura Ravenscroft battled through the home defence to blast home a well-deserved equaliser.
