Brentford WFC let a three goal lead slip as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Bromley LFC on Sunday afternoon.
The Bees hadn’t scored a league goal in two attempts before the game at Lampton School but that soon changed in a devastating five-minute opening spell for Craig Brown’s side. With barely a minute on the clock Sophie Lee turned home a front post corner to put The Bees ahead and it was 2-0 shortly after as Rhia Benjamin’s shot crept past the visiting keeper at her near post. When Benjamin rolled home to make it three on the half-hour it looked to be game over.
However, the visitors pulled one back before the break through Danielle Glancy and she then reduced the arrears even further on the hour mark with a composed finish over Emily Boycott. The Bees had chances to make it 4-2 and kill the game off, but it was Bromley who got the leveller they probably deserved late on as Tanya Holley found the back of the net. The draw leaves The Bees seventh in the Greater London Women’s Football League Division One ahead of Sunday’s visit from table-topping Godalming Town.
It was another good day for the Brentford Women’s Development Team as they beat New London Lionesses Development 5-1 on Hackney Marshes. After scoring eight the previous week, the goals continued to flow with Kelly Mackay striking twice and Emily Reynolds, Sophie Troth, and Naomi Totten adding the others. Those three points moved Brentford up to fifth in the Division Three North table with eighth placed Hackney Womens Reserves heading to Lampton School this Sunday.
