Fylde Ladies 2-2 West Brom
The Coasters came from two goals down to salvage a draw thanks to Natasha Flint’s last minute wonder goal at Mill Farm on Sunday.
Leigh Dugmore and Olivia Mitcham gave the visitors a two-goal lead with strikes either side of the break. However, Jenna Carroll halved the deficit with a glancing header before England star Flint completed the comeback with a stunning long-range strike in added time to earn the Coasters a share of the spoils.
Lagan Makin hit a free-kick that was dipping under the crossbar, however Bec Thomas did brilliantly to deny Makin by tipping the ball over the bar. Thomas was on hand again to deny Makin when she comfortably kept out her 25 yard effort.
The deadlock was broken on 41 minutes after a direct ball forward fell to Dugmore, who kept her composure and slotted the ball past Danielle Brown in one-on-one situation.
The lead was doubled shortly after the break when the ball broke to Mitcham inside the penalty box and she volleyed in from close range.
However, the Coasters did not lie down and Flint’s attempt from the edge of the area beat Thomas but rebounded off the crossbar. Yasmine Swarbrick was first to the rebound but she could not divert the ball goalwards.
The visitor’s advantage was halved with less than 20 minutes to go when Laura Walker crossed for Carroll to nod past Thomas into the bottom corner.
West Brom tried to see out the game, but the endeavour of Luke Swindlehurst’s side saw the fightback complete in added time.
Flint fired an unstoppable shot from 30 yards out over the Baggies goalkeeper, onto the bar and the ball bounced over the goal line to secure a hard-earned point on the 93rd minute.
