Belper continued to pile on the pressure, Barton started to lose their nerve and form, player 55 received another green card.
1-1 at half time.
Second half saw Daisy take a great shot on goal, with Rachel tapping it in.
Great runs and battling from Evie on the wing, Belper had a couple of SC’s with Sally scoring on the 2nd.

With 3 minutes to go Barton had 3 SC’s, but were denied.
