Beth strikes late leveller

Beth strikes late leveller - 18 Feb 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe battle at the top of the National Division remains open after the clash between Leeds Utd and Sunderland ended in a 1-1 draw. 
A late equaliser preserved Sunderland's unbeaten record and keeps them five points ahead of Leeds, but the result was also a very good one for second placed Watford who now trail the Wearsiders by two points, having played one game more.
Leeds enjoyed the better of things during the first half and were unlucky not to take the lead when a Rebekah Bass shot came back off the post. However on 26 minutes they did go in front as former Sunderland midfielder Rachel Lee slid a through ball into the path of Clare Sykes who drew goalkeeper Rachael Laws before slotting the ball home.
After the break, Sunderland pressed hard for an equaliser although it took a fine save from Laws at the other end to deny Danielle Sheen and maintain the one-goal deficit. Leeds defended stoutly under pressure and prevented Sunderland from creating clear cut opportunities but just as it looked as though Leeds were going to pick up a vital victory, a Sunderland free kick in the dying minutes resulted in a scramble in the area and the ball was cleared as far as Beth Mead who fired home a shot from the edge of the area for her 12th goal of the season.
In the Northern Division, Blackburn Rovers played their first league match since 7th October and it culminated in a 1-1 draw with Newcastle Utd. Both goals came in the first half, Katie Anderton firing Blackburn ahead with Dannika Purdham replying for Newcastle.
The result means that the table remains unaltered with Newcastle still lying in fourth, one place ahead of Blackburn who have a number of games in hand.
