The stage was set at the Racecourse for a tasty tie between first placed Ascot and second placed Bournemouth Sports and whilst there was no goal to show for it, it was an entertaining and hard fought battle by both sides.

With barely five minutes played, Ascot saw themselves with a chance to go one up as Sarah Davern drew a free kick after being knocked down by Sports, Hannah Bennett stepped up but the shot was collected well by the keeper. Sports fired back with their own chance five minutes later, but their strike was defended well by Georgia Luckhurst-McCord.

The game was end to end at times with Laura Spark chancing a shot from around 30 yards next but the chance flying over the bar. The game settled down a little after however and the next effort came from a Sports freekick after Yellas keeper, Lucie White, collided with their striker but to no avail as the ball flew left of the post.

Luckhurst-McCord proving her defensive worth once more with a well-cleared corner and a final attempt before the whistle came for Sports but a solid stop from White kept the half goal-less.

Ascot set themselves up with an early chance as Hayley Cruickshank found herself with time in the box to strike at goal but the keeper collected well. A slightly quieter second half with both teams seeing spells of possession.

Ascot worked play well as Davern sent Dom Carrington on a run down the right wing before she crossed a ball into the box for a waiting Cruickshank, but the chance was hit with just a little too much vigour and she was unable to find anything from it. Lots of the play taking place in the centre-third before Luckhurst-McCord was called into action again with a well-timed sliding tackle to cut out the Sports press in the final third.

A flurry of chances at the 70th minute mark with Carrington using her pace down the wing but the first attempt was well collected by the keeper, before a neat bit of play between her, Brown on the turn and Cruickshank span wide of the near post.

A well fought battle in some challenging playing conditions saw neither side able to break the deadlock.
