Windsor ladies dug in for a 2-2 draw against a tough Milton Keynes Ladies 2s team to hold on to top spot in Division One of the Trysports Three Counties League.

Playing at home, Maxine Bonnage gave Windsor an early lead from a well-executed short corner as the hosts tried to take control of the game.

But the visitors – unbeaten in their previous three matches – were in no mood to roll over and worked the Windsor defence until they finally found a way through to level the score.

The end-to-end action saw Bonnage put her team ahead for the second time with an unstoppable deflection which looped beyond the keeper and into the left corner of the goal.

Undaunted, Milton Keynes pressed forward in numbers and a training pitch move saw the ball drilled into Windsor's D where a striker was perfectly placed to dink it into the goal to level again.

With the game finely balanced at 2-2, both keepers were kept busy in the second half and did a terrific job of keeping their teams in the game.

Windsor winger Clare McKinnel put in a player-of-the-match performance to work some magic with captain Freya Hayter to try and find the winning goal.

Keeper Ruki Sayid put in a shift to keep the visitors out as they also hunted for a third goal to kill of the game.

But the scoreline remained unchanged and while Windsor are still on top, it is their superior goal difference keeping them ahead of Oxford Ladies 4ths who are on the same points.

The team has a week off and will be back in action on November 9 when they play Marlow Ladies 4ths away.

In Division Three, Windsor Ladies 2nds lost 4-0 to runaway leaders Thame Ladies 2nds in a home game which was lost in the first 15 minutes.

Windsor were rattled by an early goal as Thame came out fast and furious to catch the team off guard for a tap in at the right post.

Two more goals followed quickly as the light-footed forwards ran the back four ragged as the score hit 3-0 at half time.

Windsor were more composed in the second half, putting together some good moves, but lacking the clinical finish to test the Thame keeper.

And it was busy at the other end where Tasha Bailey, Natalie Morrison, Nikki Hill, Toni Riemer and Faye Kerr worked tirelessly to keep the scoreline respectable by conceding just once in the second half.

Windsor men lost 6-3 at home to West Hampstead Mens 3s with Ali Parkes getting a brace and Fraser Thompson also on the score sheet for the hosts.

Tomorrow (Saturday), the MBBO Division Two team play Amersham & Chalfont Mens 2nds away.

In Division Five, Windsor 2nds lost 3-1 at Reading University Knights, while the 3rds lost 3-1 to Banbury 4ths in Division Six.
