Swindon pegged back by late penalty
 Women's Football News 22 Mar 2009
 
As part of the Swindon Town Ladies Day on Saturday, the Ladies team played their South West Combination match with Oxford City on the County Ground pitch directly after the League One victory over Hereford Utd. 
 
They very nearly matched the mens team with a win, but were denied by a last minute penalty equaliser in an exciting encounter which ended 3-3. Oxford City deserved a point, having dominated the first half and led by a Michelle Robinson shot from the edge of the area.
 
The Robins stormed back with two fine finishes from distance by Kirsty Jones past Oxford keeper Hannah Cox. City brought Steph Kubat off the bench and she levelled with a composed finish when put through on Tasha Chapman in the home goal.
 
Swindon seemed to have won the match through a defensive blunder which gave them a 3-2 lead, but a handball offence in injury time gave Kubat the chance to level from the spot.
 
An excellent programme was produced by the Ladies club and a bucket collection was held to boost their funds. A decent number of spectators stayed from the men's game and the local rivals brought a group of away supporters to create an enthusiastic atmosphere. The junior section provided ball girls, mascots and penalty competitions at half time.
 
The Robins senior team has lost a number of key players from the team which played Doncaster Rovers Belles in the Fourth Round of the F.A.Women's Cup in January 2008 although captain Kim Reeves, Michelle Rich and Hayley Huckin remain to help them recover from a dreadful start to the season - however two-goal striker Kirsty Jones is leaving to take up a coaching post in the USA. Oxford City have competed well in the South West Combination with a very young team who were last season's champions of the Southern Region League and were well worth a second draw with their opponents in three weeks.
