FOOTBALL: Freeman fires epic revival

7:00am Wednesday 9th April 2014


LISA Freeman scored a four-timer as Tower Hill Ladies fought back from the dead to beat Marlow 7-6 in Division 1 North.

Hosts Tower were quickly out of the blocks and went ahead on seven minutes when Georgie O’Malley scored her first goal for the club.

However, they paid the price for some poor defending as the visitors stormed back to take a 6-1 lead.

Freeman opened her account after pinching the ball from a defender, and doubled her tally from Lauren Major’s cross.

Carla Garrison thumped in their fourth from long range.

Ten minutes from time, a fantastic long ball over the top of the defence from Garrison allowed Freeman to complete her hat-trick with a volley into the top corner.

On 82 minutes, Tower Hill levelled when Sarah Coles swung in a superb cross and Sarah Snowdon climbed high to place her header perfectly into the top corner.

Four minutes from time, the turnaround was complete when Freeman fired in from long-distance to seal her four-timer.
