Kayleigh Gray headed Leverington into a first-half lead at Riverside Ladies on Sunday, September 27, before the hosts fired back with a well-taken strike.

Euan Simpson’s side then laid siege on the Riverside goal, only to find the goalkeeper in inspired form, but they managed to score a second.

Savanna Plavecz’s nimble footwork allowed Sophie Swinden to net her fourth goal in two games, before Amy Newell and Laura Dudley were denied.

Leverington extended the lead in windy conditions thanks to Newell’s penalty after Plavecz was upended.
