Brighouse Pick Up Superb Point

Huddersfield Town 1-1 Brighouse Town

Report supplied by Brighouse Town

Brighouse Town picked up an excellent point away at Huddersfield Townunder the lights of the Stafflex Arena.

A very tight and tense affair sprang in to life with Town being awarded a penalty after Leah Embley was brought down in the box, Amy Woodruff stepped up but saw her attempt saved by the excellent Becky Flaherty.

The only real chance of note for Huddersfield was shielded well by Kayleigh Bamforth back to keeper Imogen Maguire. A couple of half chance for either teams meant the game drew to a close at 0-0 going in to the break.

The second half started with Huddersfield slightly on top without really having a shot on target, Brighouse did have a goal disallowed but it seemed very soft and the visitors were unlucky to not go 1-0 up.

A few free-kicks off target and with Brighouse strong on the counter, neither side looked like scoring. A mistake at the back almost cost Brighouse due to a lack of communication but they got away with it. A dubious free-kick led to a corner, and from that corner, Huddersfield edged in front through Britt Sanderson to wild celebrations with 15 minutes to go.

Brighouse never gave up and threw players forward looking for an equaliser, they got their reward with less than a minute left on the clock when Danielle Whitham played Drew Greene in and she was one on one with Flaherty. Greene composed herself and slipped it past the on rushing keeper to once again spark wild celebrations, but this time for the away side.

The game finished 1-1 and a truth a fair result. Player of the match went to Drew Greene who grabbed the equaliser and was a constant thorn in the Huddersfield backline all evening. Huddersfield named Impetus sponsored Leah Embley as their opponents player of the match.
