East Midlands League
The top of the table Premier Division clash between the unbeaten pair of leaders Peterborough Utd and second placed Rotherham Utd ended 5-3 in favour of Peterborough, but with the score having been at 3-1 to Rotherham on the 75 minute mark, it looked very much like the game would end in a home win and the gap between the pair reduced to just four points. However, Rotherham, who had gone close to further goals on several occasions, were then the architects of their own downfall. They conceded a penalty and then a free kick a few yards to the left of the D and successful conversions by Donna McGuigan and Laura Beckett respectively meant that with just over ten minutes remaining, the game was level at 3-3. The turnaround was completed with Beckett scoring Peterborough's fourth from distance just before the 90 minute mark and McGuigan making it 5-3 in stoppage time. Claire Bratton had given Rotherham the lead with Laura Patrick equalising, Amy Pollock made it 2-1 direct from a free kick and Nat Shaw fired in Rotherham's third.
