Late penalty denies Watford top spot

Late penalty denies Watford top spot - 12 Feb 2013 - Women's Football NewsWatford were moments away from topping the National Division table for the first time in their history but remain in second place after an injury time penalty saw them held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester City. 
 
A win would have seen the Golden Girls take over the leadership but it was the home side who almost went ahead in the first half when Lindsay Savage's looping header struck the bar. Nevertheless in first half injury time, a pinpoint cross from Sarah Wiltshire picked out Jo Wilson to head Watford into the lead.
 
On the hour, Wiltshire had the chance to double Watford's advantage when they were awarded a penalty but her spot kick was saved by Andrea Worrall. City pressed hard for an equaliser from that point and two goal line clearances kept the visitors ahead, but Watford's resistance was broken deep into injury time as this time City were awarded a penalty and Sarah Danby kept her cool to slot home the equaliser.
 
In the Southern Division, the day also ended in frustration for leaders Reading FC Women. The Royals were leading 1-0 away to Queen's Park Rangers but on 65 minutes, heavy rain forced the match to be abandoned because of a waterlogged pitch.
 
The other game was completed though and it also produced late drama as Tottenham Hotspur were held to a 2-2 draw by Lewes. Kelly Newton put Lewes into the lead from a corner on 27 minutes but after the break, Spurs hit back and levelled through a firm strike from Bianca Baptiste. Five minutes later they were in front for the first time, Sam Pittuck scoring from close range, but Lewes pressure told in the dying minutes when another corner led to the equaliser, Newton netting her second goal.
