Goals for Young and Wilson handed Lancaster City Ladies a point at home to Penwortham Town Ladies and took their unbeaten run to five games.

Lancaster City had the first chance on eight minutes with a Jess Hogg shot just going wide, and two minutes later Kayleigh Young had an effort aimed at the near post caught by the keeper.

Penwortham started to turn the screw, and having seen two efforts come back off the post, they went ahead on 18 minutes when a shot was parried by Lucy Tyson in the City goal and fell to the away team’s attacker to make it 1-0.

On 21 minutes, Penwortham doubled their lead when a ball found the City defence wanting, and the pacy forward ran onto the ball and buried it in the bottom right corner.

On 33 minutes, Jess Weston put in a cross which found Jess Hogg, whose ball from right to left found Kayleigh Young at the back post and got City’s opener of the day.

At half-time, the team where asked to close down and react a little quicker and work harder for each other, and within a minute City were level.

Player of the Match Emma Gardner played a ball to Georgia Wilson, who played a one two with Jess Hogg.

The ball was then played to Kayleigh Young, who played a diagonal pass behind the back four for Georgia Wilson to finish low to the keeper’s left to equalise 
2 - 2.

The game then became a bit of a stalemate from there on in – the clearest chance fell to Penwortham but goalkeeper Lucy Tyson got her fingers to the ball and pushed it beyond the post.

There were no more goals in the game as City claimed a share of the spoils.

Although it was not Lancaster’s best performance of the season so far, the ladies showed great team spirit to come back from 2-0 down and get something out of this one and it keeps them on their unbeaten run in last five games
