TOWER Hill Ladies had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Milton Keynes City in the Southern Region Women’s League.

Tower started strongly and should have gone ahead when Ellen Hopkins’ pass released Samantha Bevan-Talbot, who ran through on goal, only to shoot wide.

Ten minutes from time Milton Keynes failed to clear a cross and in a scramble, Lisa Freeman fired in at the far post.

But they were rocked when Milton Keynes were awarded a penalty for shirt-pulling, Laura Geyton putting the resulting award past Mel Gilbert in the Tower Hill goal.

Tower Hill are next in action on Sunday, March 9, when they host Fleetlands (KO 2pm).
