After an excellent three points against a strong Taunton side last week Lansdown wanted to build on that performance and secure points from a home game against Bath. Lansdown started the game well with some excellent passing play down the right hand side from Gill Russ and Nina Emery eventually resulting in a superbly timed deflection from striker Deborah Lamper giving Lansdown the lead. The second half saw Bath step up their game and a short corner routine led to an equaliser. From that point onwards Lansdown defence kept their team in the game, with some wonderful one on one saves by goal keeper Kelly Bowden resulting in Lansdown gaining a well deserved point.
